New Book - Maternity Leavers: what to do about work now you're a mum(1 Post)
Maternity leave isn’t an obstacle to your career - it’s an opportunity to create the working life you’ve always wanted.
Becoming a mum is a life changing experience, but it changes every life in a different way. Some of us can’t wait to get back to work, others can’t even face the thought of it. Some of us would love to be home as a full time mum for the baby, toddler, and preschool years, and others are planning to start and grow a business in that time.
One thing we almost all have in common though, is the desire (or need) to make some sort of change to our working life - either to balance our new family responsibilities or because we feel differently about the work we do for a living.
Whatever your reasons, and whether you’re having your first baby or your tenth, maternity leave is the perfect time to reflect, regroup, and lay some foundations for a better family future.
This book will help you do that. With lots of ideas, practical advice, and stories from personal experience about returning to work, starting your own business, or being a full time mum; you can create your own unique approach to what to do about work now you’re a mum.
About the author, Soozi Baggs
Throughout her working life Soozi has tried many different jobs, always seeking the elusive ‘dream career’. The quest has taken her from her first full time job as an office clerk in Plymouth, to University in Wales, a brief teaching stint in Japan, and far too many years in London working in a secondary school, international development charity, and several law firms and financial institutions. After a few years self employed back in the sunny South West, she’s now giving postgraduate study a whirl.
Soozi lives in South East Cornwall with her twin sons, where she writes and studies in ‘Mummy’s office’ - the only room in the house not full of toys (although definitely full of paper and books).
The book is available on a variety of platforms (Paperback as well as eBook are available):
