Hola a todos: más que no saber cómo traducir "at work or at play" no entiendo bien a qué viene en la oración:

you’ll be less aware of all the downsides of parenthood: of what being a mother is costing you professionally and personally,
at work or at play,

gracias de antemano

    Well, without seeing the rest of the text, it seems to me that the author believes that "being a mother" has consequences during a woman's free time or in her professional life.

    I can' tknow why she'll be "less aware of all the downsides of parenthood" without reading the rest of the excerpt.

    Yes, yes, you are right. The author means there are both losses in business and in pleasure. I just got it after my last reply. How important can it be to talk about our doubts while working?! Thanks a lot for you kind attention and your answers!
