Maternity leave is not easy.
Before I went on maternity leave, I made sure I had everything prepped and ready to go for my cover to start with in the fall. I had my Maternity Leave Binder and even some chocolates ready and waiting. I’d spoken with other working moms about their experiences, I’d read books and articles preparing me for new role. I thought this is all I would need to be prepared for my transition and return… I was wrong.
Sooo I wanted to share about my experience going back to work after maternity leave but if I wrote it out it would rival Rapunzel’s hair in length. Instead, I made this video. I wanted to share somethings about going back to work from a professionals point of view, not a mom’s, that no one really shared with me.
I hope you found this helpful. If you’re a mom to be trying to navigate the potentially scary world of maternity leave, just know that you’ll get through it and that there are resources out there to help you prepare. If you have any tips or advice for me or others please share them in the comments.
