supported postpartum journey
is within your reach
What if you could return to work after maternity leave prepared, confident and inspired?
Returning to work after maternity leave can feel like a daunting task. The thought of the first day back can elicit feelings of fear, overwhelm, and guilt even for people who are excited about getting back to their work routine. As the first day back looms near, the panic of: "am I ready", "can I do this", and "will my baby recognize me at the end of the day" starts to overwhelm your thoughts. It is easy to get lost in those thoughts and allow them to consume you making the last few days to weeks of maternity leave miserable. While all of these thoughts and feelings are valid and understandable, they don't have to rule your outlook.
It simply doesn't have to be this way!!
After returning to work myself twice after maternity leave and helping many of my patients do the same, I have developed a tried and true 9 step roadmap to put you on course to return to work prepared, confident and inspired.
It's Time to Create the Postpartum Life YOU Deserve and Flourish in the Fourth Trimester
Together we will make the road back to work after maternity leave shaded in confidence.
The Forgotten Trimester
'Nine Steps to Returning to Work after Maternity Leave' Course
CONNECT WITH WHAT MATTERS MOST.
Learn how to disconnect from the noise around you and tune in to what's happening in your mind, body, and soul. We'll teach you how to:
- Optimize your mental, physical and emotional health surrounding your return to work
- Connect with your core values to develop personal truths to better align your vision of a working parent
- Develop healthy boundaries as a method of self-care
It’s time to nurture yourself like never before as you integrate work back into your life.
Module 1: The return to work mindset
In the module you will explore how your mindset surrounding motherhood and working parents influence your emotions about returning to work. You will explore core values and needs that will shape your future as a working parent.
Module 2: Childcare
In this module you will explore different types of childcare options. You will identify thoughts/emotions surrounding each option to help you narrow down the best option for you and your family practically, financially and emotionally.
Module 3: Advocating for your needs at your work place
In this module you will clearly identify your specific needs in the work place as a working parent. You will learn to amplify your communication skills so that you can unapologetically advocate for your needs so that you are a successful part of the work team.
Module 4: Pumping at work
Returning to work does not equate to ending your breastfeeding journey. People can continue to successfully breastfeed even with long hours at work. This module will teach you the nitty gritty of breast pumping at work to keep your mild supply going. You will feel confident about continuing to breastfeed after completing this module.
Module 5: Managing your roles and responsibilities at home
As you return to work, your roles at home will shift. You will have to merge your home responsibilities and work responsibilities in a way that makes sense for you, your family and your job. In this module you will learn how to delicately balance your roles as a partner and mother as you integrate work back into your life.
Module 6: Creating rituals around daily tasks
In case you haven't already noticed, personal routines can be difficult to establish with a new baby at home which often leads to frustration and a feeling of loss of control. In this module you will focus on creating rituals around daily activities to help provide that sense of stability that you are needing.
Module 7: Setting boundaries as a part of self care
Cultivate your personal daily and weekly experiences based on your priorities and needs so that you can take back a little control in your life. Establish rituals surrounding daily tasks to optimize every moment.
Module 8: Keeping your partner relationship alive after returning to work
Many times self-care and partner relationships suffer the most when you return to work. It is not to anyone’s fault, but occurs more as a result of lack of preparation and the resulting 'busy-ness" of life that occurs once you add more responsibilities. In this module you will learn how to connect your partner in meaningful ways even when time is not on your side.
Module 9: Your First day back
Even if you are looking forward to returning to work, the first day can be mentally, emotionally and physically challenging. This module focuses on what you can expect from that first day back and how to understand your thoughts and feel your emotions.

Most would describe me as a an ob/gyn doctor, mother, wife, and educator. But in reality, I am so much more than that. And so are you!
I was right where your are not that long ago. I was fearfully preparing for my first day back to the hospital after maternity leave. I had a million concerns running through my head: 'what if I can't find time to pump?', 'what if I have forgotten how to perform my job?', 'will my baby recognize me when I get home?'. It was just downright overwhelming and scary. How can you be successful at your career if your constant worry is your baby and how can you be a successful parent if your constant worry is work? There is a better way, I promise! No one, no matter their career should return to work this undone!
Together, let's make your journey back to work after maternity leave full of self-love, self-discovery, and unapologetic confidence.
