Unsure what to do

My original plan was to return to work 3 mornings a week (job is only morning) but looking at the cost of childcare we'd only be about £20 a week better off.
My plan when I first got pregnant was to look for a new job on maternity leave but I don't think it would be wise to start a new job now if I could even get one.
I would be happy giving up work but it's not really fair to expect my husband to pay for everything.
Would you give up work? Or just accept not earning much? I do have another option which is to work Saturday only which I'm not keen on but would solve the childcare issue but again I wouldn't earn much
What would you do?

Personally I think three mornings a week would be great. Even if you're not earning much after childcare, you get a bit of a break from the baby, contributing a bit financially and keeping your hand in with a view to increasing your hours or finding another job in the future.
