Leading on Leave?

Posted by savannahkase on October 15, 2014 in Current Events, Parenting, Personal, Pregnancy, Research, Second Child, Woman Power, Working Mom |

With my second baby due in just over three months, I have begun to think about my upcoming maternity leave.

This past week had me reminiscing on bringing my son home from the hospital one year ago. At the time, I was not worried because I’d done my research on newborns – I’d read dozens of articles and a handful of books, plus I’d polled my friends and family who had lived the new baby […]
