And here's the scoop:
WORKSHOP: HOW TO GO BACK TO WORK AFTER BABY -- AND ACTUALLY LIKE YOUR LIFE!
It’s more than possible! Lauren Smith Brody, author of the upcoming book The Fifth Trimester: The Working Mom’s Guide to Style, Sanity, and Big Success After Baby (Doubleday, April 4), will give us a preview of what she learned from 800+ new working moms and hundreds of studies and experts, drilling down on the three areas you told us you need most:
Getting to 50/50 at home with your partner (the dual working parent trap, solved)
Making an effective, easy self-care plan -- especially if you’re going back before you feel emotionally ready
And solving your mommy-guilt issues once and for all!
Lauren is also happy to answer any questions you have about choosing childcare, working through sleep deprivation, asking for pumping accommodations, negotiating new work schedules, and more. If the first three trimesters are for pregnancy, and the fourth is newborn stretch, the fifth is when the working mom is born. Whether you feel like leaning in, or are just struggling to put one foot in front of the other (in matching shoes), Lauren’s judgement-free advice for this transition will help you help yourself -- and ultimately improve your workplace culture for all families.
