Work Like a Mother
All working mamas share two incredible things: we each brought a child into this world, and we then found the strength to go back to work. On Work Like a Mother, we celebrate these stories and unpack the previously unspoken joys and struggles of family planning, working through pregnancy, maternity leave, finding child care, returning to work, and so much more.
Guest appearances feature working moms from all walks. We’ll hear stories of post-baby career changes, questions about self-identity, mom-guilt, mom-brain, sleep deprivation, and finding a renewed sense of purpose. We’ve got part-timers and full-timers, “career oriented” and “got to pay the bills,” and others searching for “work-life-balance” (whatever that means). Each of us is changed in our own way, and we all have a story to share.
