Returning To Work...Without Leaving The House? We Talk Returning From Maternity Leave During The Pandemic

Season 1, Episode 31,   Nov 17, 2020, 06:00 AM

Returning to work after maternity leave can be exciting, fraught with anxiety or just a bit unknown.

After any time out, it takes effort to get back to where you were. But when you overlay some of the things women experience after having a baby, like loss of confidence, postnatal depression, having to look for a new job, or entering a new world of childcare logistics - it’s not easy.

But how do you do all of this in a pandemic when your clients and colleagues are all working from home? No more,“Shall we go for lunch and have a chat about my new role?” No way of swinging passed your boss’ desk to talk about that new project...

In this episode three women - a teacher, a senior analyst at an investment bank, and a marketing exec - talk about their experiences of returning to work when the world is working online.

Please be aware that this episode covers a number of mental health issues and difficult birth stories.
