Why weeLove Here's the Plan:

Here's the Plan: Your Practical, Tactical Guide to Advancing Your Career During Pregnancy and Parenthood is your roadmap for taking on challenges that can arise for working mothers. From negotiating flextime to climbing the ladder through the toughest child-raising years, handling “mommy bias” to finding the right caregiver, it’s packed with stories and wisdom from women all over the professional map (including thousands of weeSpring moms!). A lot of the step-by-step advice you’ll find in the book is specific to different stages of pregnancy and parenthood, like sharing the news, planning for leave, making sure your job gets done well in your absence, and prepping for your return.
