Balancing a family with Chemical Engineering

I am a masters student in chemical engineering with a BS in Chemistry. Right now I really enjoy the classes and challenge in ChemE. I don't have any industrial experience yet. But as a married women, I am worried about when I do get a job in the field ( ex. Oil and gas), how would I balance between busy work and taking care of a family. Especially when we plan to have a kid soon. What kind of jobs in the ChemE field is more fit for women in my situation?
