Real Life Accounts

You are not alone... the chances are that another equine vet has experienced similar problems and challenges facing pregnancy/maternity leave/juggling childcare and a job or just trying to find that elusive work-life balance. We hope that the real life (anonymous) accounts below may give you some guidance on how to tackle the trials and tribulations of equine practice and parenthood. If you would like to contribute your own story then please contact us via mumsvet@beva.org.uk
