As always there is still lots of controversy about whether women can have it all -- a family and a career. Some say that you can have them both, but at different times, others say that one or the other is better.
What's really sad is that we are still judging women for their choices in 2012. Case in point Yahoo's Marissa Mayer took lots of heat recently for being the first pregnant incoming CEO of a Forture 500 company. Why? It's her life and her choice. There's no reason to believe someone that smart and successful can't figure out how to do it all if she wants to.
Tech mom's in general are juggling the demands of parenting and business by being super efficient and having a strong support system.
"Raising a company and children at the same time requires a broad swath of help and creative planning, the executives say. "From 5 to 8, I'm a mom," says Kate Aronowitz, director of design at Facebook. She, as do many moms, thinks parenting has helped her improve as a manager.
"Think about everything we have to juggle in one day — being a mother, wife, friend, businesswoman, leader, innovator and just having a few minutes to ourselves," says Roney, who has three kids. "Talk about multitasking."

Naficy, named by Fortune as one of the most powerful female entrepreneurs, depends on a nanny, family and a housekeeper for help. "I have the latter two. Personal time is tough, but this is a trade-off."
