First time mumma-to-be: going back to work

Hi Lu,

Congratulations on your beautiful baby. I am a first time mum-to-be and planning my maternity leave. How did you find going back to work after having a baby, and were there any flexible working arrangements you found particularly helpful?

Congratulations! My biggest piece of advice would be to ease yourself back in. It can take awhile to adjust ( for both you and the baby) so I found building up my days gradually really helped and wasn’t such a sudden change. Other mothers asked me how ‘the transition’ back to was and I felt like that was such a good reminder that it’s a process.
