It’s never easy returning to work after caring for a new baby. Even if you’re ready to go back, leaving your child in somebody else’s hands is emotionally tough, not to mention the challenge of slotting back into your team after a long period away. This guide will help you cope with the daunting time of returning from parental leave.
You’re not the first to balance raising children with a career
Plenty of people have done it before and in fact 80% of employees are parents. That’s not to say it won’t be difficult but you’re not in unchartered territory. Many people juggle successful careers with successful parenting.
In fact there are probably other new parents in your workplace, who you can connect with. But don’t start comparing yourself – there’s no best way to work once you are a parent. Everyone has their own unique circumstances to deal with.
