Can you advise this potential student nurse?
“I’ve been talking to my husband about having children for a while and we finally feel like we’re both ready.
“We have just one problem: I’m meant to be starting my nurse training in September.
“I’ve wanted to do it for years and when I turned 30 last year I decided to bite the bullet and do it.
“So now I’m weighing up which takes priority, having children or getting on with my training. I know I can do both but I think it’s probably easier to do my training without worrying about childcare but I’m not sure I want to leave having children indefinitely.
“My friends and family all have opinions but I want to get the advice of someone who has done the course, preferably with children. Is it manageable or a bit of a nightmare? Would you recommend getting the course out of the way before getting pregnant?
“Any advice you can give me would be hugely appreciated! Thank you!”
