I have to say, when I started my career I had put the idea of motherhood on the furthest back burner I could find. I knew I wanted a kid. It would happen.

I am not a person who allows things to happen by accident. There was a very long lead up to the arrival of my daughter. Probably a decade.

And during that decade? Every day I labored on my career. I planned and schemed and despaired and triumphed (why does it feel like I despaired more than I triumphed? I should cut myself a break)

When motherhood arrived, when I was at home with my infant, I could not imagine how I would enter the career again. I wanted to go back. I could not imagine not going back.

Think about that.

I could not imagine going back and I could not imagine not going back.

I could not imagine myself at all.

It was very very uncomfortable.

For my pregnant professional friends, you are my people. I do NOT want that feeling for my people.

That’s what this program is about. A roadmap that applies to you. A roadmap with a tiny LED light for when your life goes dark.

Your friends and your family will give you help. Take it.

But this is the only place I’ve ever seen that lays out the journey all the way.

I would have loved to have this, it would have made a difference in my life. So I want you to have it.

Here is the way for you to be confident, to see around the corner and know that you are handling the things that are important to you and that make you YOU.
