Are you thinking about starting a family? Or, perhaps you have children and know all too well the challenges of finding your own work-life balance.
The OITE Career Blog is reposting a three part series from the archive about having a family during one’s scientific training. In this series, we asked grad students, postdocs, and clinical fellows questions about parenthood in an attempt to compile a list of pros/cons and general advice.
Question #1: Why was this a good time for you to start a family?
Question # 2: What were the challenges you faced?
Question # 3: Do you have any advice for NIH trainees thinking about starting a family?
