'Babies do not suffer when mothers go back to work' study reveals

A study by the Society for Research into Child Development has concluded that when mothers return to work months after having a child their babies’ wellbeing is not adversely affected. 
 
The outcome of this report is welcomed by the many women such as myself and my business partner Hayley Knowles, who have struggled with the guilt of returning to work after having children, particularly as other research has informed us that returning to work may negatively effect our children's development. Once my first child had settled into nursery I knew that I had made the right decision to return to work and now my second son also enjoys his time there. I believe that their development has been enhanced due to the provision at the nursery they attend and with a part-time nanny they get excellent care.. 
 
The key to happy and well rounded children seems to be good quality childcare, whether it be at home with parents/carers or a nanny or outside provision with a childminder or a nursery.
