Back to work after baby?

In today's world, more than half of all mothers with babies work. And even more mothers with babies and older children are working. Here are some tips on navigating that transition.

  1. Find dependable child care. Get advice from friends, family, neighbors, co-workers and your child's doctor.
  2. Don't feel guilty. Remind yourself you are doing what's best for you and your family. Everyone makes decisions that are right for them.
  3. Talk to your boss and co-workers. Everyone knows this will be a transition for you and will want to help.
  4. Be organized. You will have to learn to multitask. Do what works best for you. Keep an old-fashioned calendar or store your notes in your smartphone.
