The return to work after maternity leave often comes with a rollercoaster of emotions for many mums.
The ‘mum guilt’ makes an appearance when you think about leaving your little one, topped with the apprehension and worry whether you can still do your job on little sleep and months of being in ‘mum mode!’. Then there’s the added worry of whether you’ll actually achieve the fine art of getting to work on time once you've juggled breakfast time and getting you and your little one ready and out the door.
Finally, there’s the emotional explosion - choosing childcare that you’re happy with, all contributing to a minefield of feelings, it’s no wonder so many new mums feel a little overwhelmed with the return to work!
While every mum is different, and there’s no quick fix or perfect ‘return to work’ method, there are practical tips and techniques, that can have you and your little one ready for the new adventure that awaits you both.
