Dr Carolyn Ee is one of my favourite bloggers. She is a pure example of an inspired and dedicated mum who not only does not see any contradictions between her motherhood role and her professional role but also she is brave enough to get online and promote her perspective of balancing family and work. The link below is her recent post on her perspective about combining PhD and motherhood. I feel so related to this post as I had my first baby during my PhD and the second during my postdoc. I wish I had known her earlier in my journey to take advantage of her high energy and motivation to push myself further along the track during those moments of struggling and frustration.
