As part of our commitment to bringing you real working mums, we introduce our Working Mum
Series. Over the coming weeks we will be sharing the profiles of a group of accomplished women from a variety of backgrounds and careers in the hope their stories will give a balanced overview of the realities of working when you have children as well as the impact of pregnancy, maternity, ethnicity and in some cases flexible working, on their careers. Some have kept their identity hidden so that they can be free to give as honest an account of their experiences as possible. We thank each and every one of them for being so candid.
