The Juggle Asks: Can Having a Baby Zap Your Ambition?

For insightful posts and spirited reader dialogue concerning the choices and tradeoffs people make as they juggle work and family, we've recommended the Wall Street Journal's The Juggle blog, edited by Sara Schaefer Muñoz. It's not just for lawyers, but offers very relevant guidance to hard working lawyers with families.

In a recent post, Muñoz asked working moms "whether having a baby erodes your interest in work, at least in the short term?" The inquiry was triggered after Muñoz met up with an old friend who had always been very driven and career-focused, but suddenly lost her enthusiasm for her job after having her first baby and returning to work from maternity leave a few months ago. In fact, all she can get excited about nowadays, she told Muñoz, is being with her child.

The post has so far elicited 27 comments. We invite our readers to chime in as well on this timely topic.
