Returning to work after maternity leave is a stressful time for many mums.

You not only need to factor in how to juggle your working life with your home life. You’ve now got your little bundle of joy to factor into the equation and this can be a difficult time with many adjustments necessary.

In this episode I speak with Millie Malum, a mother of two who has been through this, juggling a career with her family. Millie’s passion led her to write a book, ‘Merging Parenthood and Work: A New Mum’s Guide to Returning To Work Post Maternity Leave’, which has recently been published on Amazon.

Available either as a downloadable Kindle e-book or a printed book, Millie’s book covers many topics including:-

  • Planning for a family and factoring in government regulations.
  • How to have the necessary conversations with your employer to smooth the transition.
  • What to do whilst on maternity leave to make the return to work easier.

The book includes templates and checklists to help guide you through every step of the way.
