Mamas Going Back to Work
Going back to work after maternity leave is a big life transition. Having a baby feels so purposeful and this may leave you feeling without purpose about the work you do. It can feel overwhelming, scary and leave you feeling anxious. Join me in community with other Mamas and get the support you deserve.
In the Going Back to Work class, you will be met with compassion for wherever you are in your transition back to work. All experiences are welcome; whether you can’t wait to go back to work or are crying just thinking about it. This class will give you the opportunity to take the mountaintop view of your whole life. This class will help you find clarity to what is most important to you today as a Mom and working woman. It will show you how you can design your life with more ease and discernment during this important transition.
Come and discern the best pace and action plan for your unique, individual transition to the working world as a Mom. We spend much time preparing for birth but less time preparing for the integration of life after the baby is born. Come and be in community with other Moms in the same position and create the next best steps for you and your family with ease, grace, and flow.
In this class you can expect to receive the following:
- Clarity on personal values as a new Mom
- Community and connection with other Moms in the same situation
- Support in creating self-care in this major transition
- Self-created action plan that helps generate balance
Michelle’s “Going Back to Work” class at Natural Resources came at a perfect time for me. I was contemplating how to get back into the working world as a new mom. The workshop was a great help in getting my goals and priorities in order. I left the class with an action plan. Primarily, figuring out a way to work on a contract basis in my former industry, ideally with my past employer. Since that time, I have made great strides in networking with former colleagues and potential employers. In fact, I am currently negotiating a contract job with my former company! Additionally, I have signed for a short-term project in February/March within my industry. It is a project that will likely be offered again if it’s a good fit for both parties. This workshop forced me to put my ideas into action. I owe it to Michelle’s class to give me the nudge I needed to get the ball rolling. -Monica P.
Thank you so much for facilitating the ‘Going back to Work’ session for mothers at Natural Resources. The workshop really helped me to articulate my values and the most important aspects of my life. This went a long way towards helping me to develop a plan to balance my work life with my new life as a mother. The follow-up sessions helped me to further define that plan. It’s been wonderful working with you! -Kate S.
