Can working mothers achieve a decent work/life balance in actuarial?

I am a single mother considering an actuarial career and I'm just wondering is it possible to have a life outside work and be a mother and be an actuary?

Is anyone else in this situation and how have you coped? Have you experienced any negative attitudes in terms of promotion for example?
