Supporting Families Through Maternity Leave Transitions
Guidance on navigating return to work for new parents
When a mother transitions onto maternity leave it marks a time of significant change and adjustment for the entire family. It is also a major shift for women as they move from their role as an employee into that of a mother. Returning to work after a period of maternity leave can be just as daunting, but knowing exactly what support is available throughout this time can help to make these transitions smoother.
