I think the answer will be yes. It's generally hard to be a Mum and doing a job at the same time makes it harder. If you can get support from family and friends it's easier and cheaper as child care is very expensive.
I'm a mum, not a full time model, but a full time administrator and my childcare costs are astronomical, I would probably be better off not working, but, I like my job.
I can imagine that being a full time model is even harder, as you would not have a means of knowing when you will need childcare in advance, so, unless you can get help from family or friends on an ad-hoc basis, I should think think it is near impossible.
After I pay my childcare costs, I am left with £300 odd of my wages...
M 22 & have a nearly 9 month old. I found (& still find) it difficult to work around my daughter as shoots can last all day, having to find time to get ready, a babysitter, travel etc is very hard. Before I had her I modelled full time & I was happy to travel for work but at the moment I will only work from home or locally. & I can only manage a shoot when I have time. I think its do-able but its hard to juggle.x
Who is this aimed at please? If me - because he is busy working full time as well.
i thought the same
there are alway occasions when a babysitter is required - esspecially if both parents work to support the child (which should be implied by jenny's post as its impossable to raise a child on £300 alone)
i suppose its not easy. but then what other job could fit around your child better than modelling? small hours , great pay and you give yourself more dedication to keep on top of your health and looks. The only problem i seem to have is missing her on trips away and also because the type of level i do and the publishing, whether this will interfere with her life as she gets older.
other than that i think its one of the best jobs a mum could have!
