My baby has just turned 1 and I went back to work in November on a 0.8 contract. I am really struggling, not just with juggling being a mum and a teacher, but with everything! I also don't think my partner is being as supportive as he could be - he won't get up on time to take over so that I can get to work, so I always end up late; he won't do any housework or cleaning, so I'm trying to do everything and I just cannot cope at all. I suggested we hire a cleaner but as we are paying so much in childcare that idea was shot-down immediately. I have no family that live nearby to support me, my husband's mother lives close but she is disabled and too old to help with our baby, or lend a hand in anything else. I can't afford to drop any days and have already had an application for flexible working refused. To top all of this off, the teacher covering my maternity leave did not stick to any schemes of work I had left, I have year 11s with no coursework at all and all my key stage 4 working well below their target grades, so I'm being pressured from the SLT to stay after school and give up my lunch times for "interventions". My working day is so full-on that I don't even have the time to eat or sit down for 10 minutes; because I am leaving the house later in the morning my commute is now 1.5 hours, and the same home. It honestly feels like I have developed post-natal depression just as I've gone back to work. I've tried going to the doctors and started some therapy but could not find the time to attend any of the appointments as they are during my working day and the HT wouldn't release me. Any advice?
