I wasn't sure where to post this but here goes.
I work for a VERY small dog training/ service dog training company where my location is only 3 people. I am basically the only trainer and I am due end of Feb early March. They are a new company so have never had to think about maternity leave before and it is such that dogs stay with me where I am living and rent is split between my husband and I and the company. I do several lessons in home and some I drive to locally but some lessons are over 2 hours away, one way. I will be a FTM and my question is how easy is it to work from home ( not just computer work) 3-4 weeks after giving birth. Does the idea of being away from the baby for 1-2 hours at a time 1-3 times a day seem feasible. When would I probably be able to up that to 5-6 hours. My husband also works from home BUT he really has to focus on work to make a quota but he works 4, 10-hour days that rotate bi weekly such that he has off every other weekend and two days of during the week that change. So he would be able take care of the LO while I'm gone on those days but the big question is is it feasible to care for 2-3 dogs staying with me that need training. The company can't really afford to help pay the rent on the house if they aren't making income from dogs staying with me and being trained.
Sorry it's so long but if anyone could give me any advice or rough estimate of timeline and what to expect that would help so much.
