Career/home life Balance advice

Greetings to you Aunty Bunmi.

I would love for you to post this on your blog as I would love to get people’s views on the issue.

I am a recent graduate with second class (lower division) in B.Sc Mcb. I will be a mum pretty soon and at the same time planning on going for a degree in Med Sug in one of the Nigerian federal universities (direct entry mode). My question goes, what are the challenges a young mum with such plans likely to face, how can I combat them and make it to medical school while handling my family. Am not after the money or whatever but have a strong passion to save lives and better the society.

P.S, my husband is very supportive of my career decisions.
