As many as 90 per cent of working mothers feel worried about balancing their family life with their career, according to new research.
The study from the Parent Coaching Academy and Amazing Education also revealed that 90 per cent of working mums feel guilty when they are away from their children for work.
Two in three women, meanwhile, fear that they are failing as parents, something which Amazing Education has responded to by producing a new online resource to help them tackle stress and feel more positive about being a working mum.
Jane Bell of Amazing Education added that working mothers had many skills that made them ideal employees.
She said: "Working mums are often more well-rounded individuals after having children, and frequently better equipped to cope with challenges – if you can cope with a screaming baby you can cope with a screaming client," onrec.com reports.
"Their busy home lives can frequently improve their multi-tasking skills and make them more focussed in their role, whilst the need to support new dependents makes for a very motivated workforce," she added.
A report published earlier this year in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health Study found that working mothers with steady relationships were healthier and less likely to be obese than stay-at-home mothers, with 23 per cent of working mums obese compared to 38 per cent of homemakers.
