I WOTH until I got laid off in July. I wrote my novel and did most of the editing prior to the layoff, and was making better progress back then, too! To be honest, all of the writers I know in person (fiction writers, many of them successfully publishing novels) have day jobs. Fiction is not a particularly lucrative field.
I do know several people who work as non-fiction writers, including one woman who is a freelance magazine article writer and a few technical writers (but they aren't freelance).

One more thought. Did anyone else find that they just had no creative energy to spare while nursing? For me, this was a loss I actually grieved.
