Back to work woes

Tips for making the transition back to working full time as easy as can be emotionally? My maternity leave ends soon and I am really struggling with the thought of being away all day. Was off 12 weeks, and he's my first. Thanks!!

Oh gosh. Really feel for you. We get 12months off here in UK and I feel like that is not enough! Good luck when you go back. I remember crying in the nursery car park when I dropped my daughter off for the first time! X

I completely understand! Gives me the worst anxiety the thought of leaving my baby girl while I’m at work all day! 😭 so now I have my own online business which I manage from home when she’s napping, most my business partners are other mamas and it’s the bestttt decision we ever made!! Hope It’s not so bad for you hun when the time comes ♥️♥️

You poor thing... i feel your pain... its hard that first day you leave him/her and every day is hard 😧😧 but you will feel so proud of yourself when you've done it... and the best feeling in the world is when you return home from work and see a smiling face excited to see you or a tiny head looking out the window at you pulling up in the car... it makes it so worth it i promise... xxxx

FaceTime is a huge help and lots of pictures and videos throughout the day. I also make sure to make the weekends about her- it’s certainly not easy. I also find it helpful to have some positive mantras

I’m in the middle of trying to find a job after being home with my baby boy for the past 7 weeks. I don’t know how I’ll be able to start working again knowing how amazing it’s been to bond with him these past few weeks. I don’t want to give it up!

I hear ya! I went back to school after my little. It’s been hard but thankful that I have my own business to pick up the financial slack and my school is mostly online! I’ve been home with my baby girl and loving every minute!!
