NAVIGATING "THE FIFTH TRIMESTER" - THE BIRTH OF THE WORKING MOTHER

We are mega mom crushing on Lauren Smith Brody who coined the term "The Fifth Trimester®" (also the name of her best selling book, you can buy it here). she says this "The first three trimesters are pregnancy. The fourth is the newborn haze. But the fifth trimester is when the working mom is born."   For working moms, months three through six of a baby’s life constitute the fifth trimester of pregnancy, a time when you’re as raw as a newborn fresh out of the womb.  Whether you're entering back into the workforce after a mere 6 weeks (or less, a staggering 25% of American women are going back to work at the 2 week mark) or whether you've taken a longer break to be home with your children, the massive life transition of becoming a WORKING MOM is huge.  

WE WANT YOUR STORIES

How has motherhood affected your career? In what ways are you making working "work"? Where are the areas where you would love to see more support? We want are using our platform this month to share your stories, your thoughts, your fears and your advice. We will be calling on the working mamas in our community to share your truths. Check the most recent stories already shared in our M Word section.  We will also be dedicating our June 21st Brooklyn Meet Up to this topic and hear from different voices on how they have pivoted/shifted their careers through mom hood, we will unpack the process of re-entry after taking a break, and we will hear from some experts on advice and how we can be better advocates in supporting the working mother and her needs.  Please contact us below if you have a story to share!

REAL TALK

we embrace the breakdowns and breakthroughs around mom-hood and in having real conversations, about real topics, both in person and through our online and social platforms. we think judging is lame and that moms should be a little nicer to each other.
