How to Juggle the Books and a Baby – Life as a Student Mama

Life as a Student Mama

How do you handle life as a student when you've got a baby to care for? Is it possible to juggle the books and your baby? What about doing clinical or intern work while parenting your little one? I share my experiences and some tips I've found helpful along the way

Topics I Cover in This Podcast:

  • My experience juggling a new baby with a midwifery apprenticeship
  • Why I chose to take time off from clinical work and attending births – plus how I decided I was ready to jump back in
  • Which births I considered taking Phoenix to (and how I prepared for the primary birth I didn't)
  • Handling the reality of school and baby (hint: you can handle it, even when it's hectic!)
  • When it makes sense to leave baby at home
  • Creative child care arrangements that can help you hit the books
  • How scheduling has helped me balance mothering Phoenix with midwifery school
  • Why “no” is a good skill to have!
  • How to maximize the time when baby is awake… and the time when baby is sleeping
