Wondering how to survive as a new working parent?
You’ve come to the right place.
The first year of each of my children’s lives were the hardest years of my life. I fell madly in love with two little redheads, who turned my world upside down and left me in a spiral of both chaos and beauty. I was fiercely committed to my career, yet had no idea how to survive being a new working parent. How to be an engaged mother at home and a leader a work.
I created Mindful Return after too many tears on the kitchen floor. Too much overwhelm. Too much guilt. Too much anxiety.
Join us to learn how to dance through this period of life with skill and support. The parents here know what it’s like to love your baby and your career. We have your back as you navigate pregnancy, parental leave, and your return-to-work journey.
Hello! I’m Lori, the founder of Mindful Return
I’m a lawyer, a mama, and an entrepreneur.
I’m also the author of Back to Work After Baby: How to Plan and Navigate a Mindful Return from Maternity Leave, a book Working Mother Magazine calls “every ambitious new mother’s bible.”
My passion is helping new parents develop strategies and tools so they can be present – both with their babies, and in their careers. I’m also here to connect like-minded parents and nurture this thriving community of new working moms.
Sign up for my short, weekly newsletter, Our Gift To You, in the box on the right. I would be honored to have you a member of the Mindful Return Community.
