It is really useful, it gives plenty of ideas to expecting mothers and it re-assures new mums that they have not closed the career door by becoming a mother, but they have indeed opened up many new opportunities. Definitely a great read! Highly recommended +++++
Maternity Leavers offers up suggestions for all prospects when you have a baby or small children to consider. It covers advice about the practicalities of returning to your previous job, or starting a new one, with guidance about flexible work and shared parental leave. It talks about how to set yourself up as self-employed, and the various business models that you could try. And finally, it suggests other ways to occupy your time that are not necessarily geared towards earning money. Soozi is very keen to reassure us that the parental journey is unique for everyone. She reminds us that our self-worth is not measured in cold, hard cash. We can choose to stay at home and nurture our children, or we can take on additional academic or practical studies. Or we could do voluntary work, if it fulfills us and makes us happy.
I enjoyed reading the book. The language is casual and friendly, and the chapters are short so you can read it around your baby/toddler/puppy etc. It made me feel better about the choices I make, and reminded me that there is always a solution to a challenge. It is never too late to try something new and reinvent ourselves.
