New mamas returning to work after maternity leave can use all the help and support they can get from the colleagues, friends, and mentors in their lives.  I am grateful today to Susan Smith Blakely of Best Friends at the Bar for featuring my article on her blog: What Happens After Maternity Leave Is a Challenging Experience.Mentoring

  • Encouraging her to take credit at work for a well-planned leave and return; and
  • Helping her connect with other returning mamas.
