Whether you’re going back to your pre-baby job or you decided to take a career break, work might be on your mind. Having a baby affects our career paths and alters our identities in ways we may not anticipate.
This group is for new moms who are returning to their pre-baby jobs and moms who are taking a career break. For those going back to their jobs, the prospect of balancing motherhood and a work can feel overwhelming. Being home with baby presents its own challenges, and adaptation to a new role.
Our group will offer all new moms a safe space for sharing and support. It will also impart practical guidance for transitioning back to work and becoming a stay at home parent. You’ll come away feeling more confident and prepared for what lies ahead.
We will address questions including:
– What if I’m constantly distracted at work?
– If I’m home with my baby, what’s the best way to structure our days?
– How can I prepare for going back to work?
– If I take a career break, will my “resume gap” prevent me from getting a job in the future?
– What if I can’t carry the workload I used to have?
– I’m conflicted about whether I should go back to work – how do I figure it out?
The workshop will be facilitated by Jessica Gilbert, MSW, CMCC. Jessica helps people navigate career and life transitions, guiding them towards balance and fulfillment.
