Childcare a major issue
- I have two children and both of them are less than 10 years of age. My husband had to go back to run his business. My mother had been denied a visa and hence I had to look for a nanny to look after my child. This meant that I could only do day on calls with some difficulty ( 13 hours is difficult -9AM – 9.30 PM). Night on calls would have been impossible.
- It is not easy to get child support in the UK. A live in Nanny can set you back more than half your salary. They are only allowed to do a certain number of hours per week
- In addition, you have to pay for nursery care.
