Any woman with kids knows that being a mom is a full-time job. But that's not the only job many women have. Today, nearly three-quarters of moms are juggling jobs and families. We reached out to more than two-dozen moms with successful careers -- from authors to athletes to top-ranking executives -- and asked them to share personal stories of going back to work after having a baby. Here's what we heard:

Have you returned to work since baby arrived?  How has the transition back to work been so far?

I'm on maternity leave until Jul/Aug time (last 3 months will be unpaid) but I'm hopin when the time comes we'll be able to afford for me to be a SAHM. I went back to work 2 days a week after my first baby and found that difficult to juggle home life with work life, especially once I was pg again, but feel very privileged to be able to consider not returning.
