Earlier this year, I asked women about their hopes, worries and fears around maternity leave. The results were fascinating and I have now published a Top Tips sheet on How to Make The Most of Your Maternity Leave based on the responses.
One of the questions I asked What concerns did you have, if any, before starting your maternity leave? and this graphic below reflects the main concerns of the 100+ women who responded.
Women worried about going back to work, money, loneliness, boredom, childcare and how would they cope, in all senses.
What about you? What were your concerns before you started maternity leave? Leave a reply and let me know.
