I’ve seen a lot of “kids-in-grad-school” advice that’s geared towards male PhD students with stay-at-home wives. I’m a female MD PhD student married to a male MD PhD student, and neither of us is going to quit our career. We are both willing to put in the time needed to raise a family.

I’m interested in hearing from the following perspectives:

(a) women who had kids while they were in graduate school

(b) men or women who had kids while they were in graduate school and did NOT have a stay-at-home partner.

For those folks, how did you make it work? if you could go back and time and give yourself advice about the experience, what advice would you give?
