Navigating Your Pregnancy, Career and Family Just Got Easier

I created The Pregnant Professional to help you avoid the confusion that inevitably comes with navigating the workplace while pregnant, on maternity leave, and when you return to work. I want to help you pursue your career and be a fantastic mom. I’ve been there before, and yes, it can be done!

Protect your career and be confident of your choices. This way you can focus more on all the other things when it comes to parenting—without your ambition for your career getting left behind.

You are still important. Your identity, your family, and your career matter.

The Pregnant Professional Fundamentals Course builds on the applied techniques from The Pregnant Professional Handbook and consists of a series of videos, worksheets and checklists.

Course topics include:

Checklists for each trimester

Childcare and your choice to work

Maternity leave

Returning to work after baby

It is taught by me, Murphy Daley, Project Manager at AVI-SPL and author of several self-published books, including The Pregnant Professional. As a project manager, I specialize in infrastructure projects for Fortune 500 companies, as well as strategic technology consulting for start-ups and smaller companies. I facilitate leadership teams through the process of defining goals and choosing the right technology solution.

In my 20 years in corporate America—and as a working mother—my career has always been important to me. I believe ​when mothers thrive, families thrive. And so do companies. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, seventy percent of mothers with children under 18 participate in the labor force, with over 75 percent employed full-time. Also, working mothers are the primary or sole earners for 40 percent of households with children under 18 today.

Motherhood is hard. You have one of the most life-changing experiences about to occur in your life, and remembering yourself is the first thing to keep in mind. If you are happier working, do it. If you’re happier being a stay home mom, do it. It’s your choice!

A happy mom is a good mom.
