Many working women when starting a family are faced with a dilemma whether to take a sabbatical from their career or to leave their child with other care givers. This is not an easy decision to take as generally moms-to-be are standing at a very crucial juncture as far as their career is concerned, and years spent away from the corporate world may mean a severe setback to their career growth chart. Also the mother finds it difficult to leave her newborn baby in the care of others. She knows that these are the crucial years for her child’s mental development and growth.
