From the Back Cover:

It’s time to go back to work. But this time you’ll be a working mother. So, what has changed? And what’s the same? What is it that you want? And how are you going to get your little darling to let go of your leg long enough to allow you to get out of the door?

If you’ve been asking yourself these questions, then this is the book for you.

Every woman who has a child or who is considering starting a family faces the question of how she is going to manage her career once the baby is born. Whether you have been out of the workforce for one year or ten, this straight-talking guide will cover all aspects of returning to work, surviving the juggle and making it work for you and your family.

“Easy-to-read and information packed - it gave me the confidence to go after the flexible work environment I wanted and showed me how to achieve it.”

Julie Ritchie, Account Manager, IT

'After ten years and four children, it made me feel the world was my oyster',

Kirstie Williams, Industry Sector
