I created a podcast to share the stories of so many wonderful women successfully balancing their careers in STEAM fields with motherhood.
As a new mum working as a civil engineer, I was daunted at the fact that I wouldn't be able to cope and my career or family life would suffer as a result. Mothers in engineering and STEAM fields in general aren't publicised and so I didn't realise that there are actually a myriad of women with amazing careers whilst also being very present with their children and partners. So that other women following me would know that it is most certainly possible to balance a STEAM career with a happy family, I created the podcast.
Unfortunately, as we all know, to balance these things we need to set boundaries and admit when things are getting too much. Following the birth of my second child, I became even more busy and, as a result, no longer had time to coordinate, record, edit and release podcast episodes. I also didn't want the ongoing monetary commitment for hosting the podcast. So, the podcast has been deleted.
BUT... I still publicise "mumgineering" on my BLOG so have a read.
