What are your goals for 2017? Is to get pregnant or to have a baby one of them?
If you are planning to become a mother or just starting to feel broody, knowing how to ensure you and your career not only survives but also thrives is a key consideration for many women today. If 2017 is the year you want to become a mum or start trying to conceive is there a part of you holding back, fearful of how you would cope, financially, professionally or emotionally and unsure how your colleagues and career could be affected?
Do you love your career and feel torn between your desire to have a baby and see your professional ambitions fulfilled or want to be a role model to younger women, have a successful career and a family but secretly wonder if it actually is possible?
I work with many ambitious women who fear getting pregnant or struggle with conflicting emotions because they are surrounded by less than positive examples of mothers struggling to keep their careers on track and fulfill their full potential. They want to start trying for a baby but are all too aware of the rising rate of maternity discrimination and challenges that women face when wanting to focus on both their personal and professional goals.
As a maternity coach and consultant I have worked and connected with thousands of women who are learning how to move into motherhood feeling empowered, inspired and supported. And are discovering that the experience and transition allows them to bring a new style of feminine leadership back to the workplace.
Not sure whether this is the year you are ready to become a mum?
