London Actress Uma Thurman, who became a mother for the third time this July, says she has struggled to find the correct balance as a working mother in the past.

The 42-year-old said she is yet to work out how much time she needs to spend with her children, reported Daily Mail.

\"The question of balance has always been kind of a funny one to me because I don\'t think there is any balance. I feel like I\'ve never done enough.

\"I do think I\'m pretty good at home, but trying to balance my energies outside the home? It\'s a challenge; there\'s so much more I want to do and can do,\" Thurman said.

The actress also confessed that when she was younger and became a mother she did not think that she could do anything else, as she was completely overwhelmed.

\"When I was younger and became a mother, I didn\'t think I could do anything else; I was completely overwhelmed. I felt guilty and afraid about working, guilty and afraid about not working.

\"It\'s very overwhelming for a younger person, which is why it\'s awesome to get to have another baby when you\'re grown up,\" she added.
