"Picking up where Motherlove, Babylove? and Kaz Cooke leave off, TheThe Working Mothers' Survival Guide∑ is the indispensable, must-have bible for all working women who want to have babies but keep their careers on track too. While there are plenty of pregnancy guides out there, none deal specifically with the breadth of issues confronting the many mums hoping to return to work with in a year or two of their baby's birth. For example, * How do you (politely) stop colleagues constantly touching your stomach? * Are there any tricks to surviving 9am meetings with morning sickness? * How do you go about securing a day-care place for your child, and just how early do you need to start looking? * How do you find (or afford) a nanny? * How do you prevent your pregnancy affecting your chances of promotion? * How can you maintain your standard of living and plan for your changing financial status? * How do you negotiate a new work arrangement when you return? * How can you meet the conflicting demands and schedules of parenting and work? And, more importantly, * Can one woman wear the same pair of stretchy black pants to the office for 6 months without losing her dignity or her mind? With break-outs featuring advice from experts - lawyers, health care workers and inspiring working mums; 'how-to-do', 'what-to-have' and 'where-to-find' checklists; loads of resources and more than a few laughs, The Working Mother's Survival Guide∑ is packed full of useful information to help new mothers cope - and even enjoy - juggling the demands of motherhood, work and finding a little 'me' time."--Provided by publisher.… (more)
