Nursing mum pictured breastfeeding her son while writing post graduate degree exam says "life is harder for a career driven woman"
A mum was pictured breastfeeding her son while writing an exam. The mum-of-three took to Facebook to narrate the incident leading up to the point where she had to breastfeed during an exam. Marlene Onyedikachi-Nwalozie explained that her husband, who was waiting outside the exam hall with their child, had tried everything to make their son stop crying. When nothing worked, he handed the child over to the invigilator who then took the baby to the mother. Despite the mum's best efforts, she said nothing could pacify her son so she had to breastfeed him while writing her exams. "This is how we stayed for 2 hours till I finished exam," she wrote on Facebook.  She explained that she also had to hold her daughter in her arm while writing her MSc exams back in 2016. Despite the struggles, she revealed plans to continue to PhD level. "This life is harder for a career driven woman, " she concluded.
