There are many books about being pregnant and giving birth, but none focus on the emotional component of transitioning to motherhood and how to set yourself up for success during maternity leave. 

Look no further working moms-to-be, this Maternity Leave guide is what you’ve been waiting for. Written for the busy professional, this handbook has everything you need in one place, and you can easily digest it in a single sitting. 

New moms spend most of their time and energy worrying about the birth (who wouldn’t?!), only to later realize that this was a teeny, tiny blip in their life as a mom. And the truth is, you can’t predict how your baby will be born, but you can make plans for a smoother transition into motherhood.

Whether you have 6 weeks or 6 months, maternity leave requires a fundamentally different mindset. It’s not a test and no one is giving out grades or promotions based on how you perform. And yet, without a conscious shift, many professional moms find themselves striving to succeed at motherhood. This is an engaging guide to maternity leave that will help you avoid the common mistakes made by overachieving, Type A, working women when they transition into motherhood. The book also covers how to avoid “bad mom syndrome”, as well as the rarely discussed emotional components of pregnancy and motherhood. 

Through her own story of becoming a mother, Lisa Abramson infuses this guide with practical tools and tips. And as a lifelong overachiever, Lisa understands the pressures on modern working women. After a devastating and intense experience with Postpartum Depression and Psychosis, everyone can learn from Lisa’s rocky and challenging transition into motherhood. The tools and tips she shares are her hard earned lessons. 

This is the book Lisa wished she’d read before becoming a mom, and Lisa hopes it can be a source of light and wisdom for you too. Whether you’re pregnant with your first, or a mother of three, this guide is for all working moms out there.
