How my first return to work failed

Returning to work from maternity leave in the next six months?

Just hoping it will all work out?

Here is my story. And my solution!

When I went back to work after my first baby I had my head in the sand.
I didn’t know what to ask for at work (and I was in HR!!!!)

Other than organizing daycare drop offs my husband and I didn’t have a plan.

After dropping my baby off at daycare on the second day I cried on the bus the whole way to work.

The first month was a disaster. All the things I had done on mat leave (make dinner, grocery shop, shopping) I will still trying to do.

My son was sick twice and I missed 5 days of work and my husband and I were fighting because I was so burnt out.

I was assigned to work on a return to work portfolio with a large client and as I created programs I saw that for my next mat leave I needed a program!

Over the next 6 years I helped 800 people return to work but BEST of all – my 2nd mat leave return I was prepared!! No fighting – just a solid plan

I negotiated part time work from home.

I knew the emotional issues that would come up and I was ready for them.

My boss even asked to use the work plan I presented as a template for future mat leave discussions.

On my third mat leave I wrote a 28 day program filled with all the things I saw work for me AND hundreds of other people.

For only $49 and less than 10 minutes a day you can make sure that my first story isn’t yours!!!! You get ALL the course materials to keep FOREVER. A supportive group of other moms AND access to ME in the group for the 28 days (totally OK to miss days I will still be there). Lets make a plan. Lets talk about the hard stuff.

Sound awesome! It is – next round starts on Monday Feb 4th!!! Join us 🙂
