We are More Than A Tick Box, a social enterprise providing support to mothers through maternity leave and their return to work, with an emphasis on maternal mental health.
Maternity leave can bring mixed emotions. One minute you are excited for your bundle of joy. The next you’re in the toilets crying from exhaustion, worrying about how work will change whilst you aren’t there.
Will they still need me? What if my cover does a better job than me? Will I be able to cope with a baby and work? They are all common fears but to you they feel overwhelming and all-consuming.
Believe me when I say I know exactly how you are feeling. All the questions, doubts, tears, worries – I’ve been there. More importantly, I made it through to the other side!
