On today’s episode I’m getting into a little bit of a hot topic. Two words…

Maternity Leave!

I’m talking about my personal experiences of working in a male dominated field and what it is like to be the first female who has ever gone on a maternity leave in my department.

I am also sharing what I have learned from my experience this time and last time when going on a leave with Liam.

You may think you are all prepared but then you find yourself creating a brand-new checklist and getting through some tough obstacles.

One lesson I would like you to take away from this episode is that no matter how uncomfortable the situation please make sure you are standing up for yourself and your rights.

Make sure to always be your own advocate and blaze that trail you wish existed!

I would love to continue this conversation with you on maternity leave. Tag me on Facebook and Instagram @ownyourprettynow so we can chat.
