The Parental Leave Playbook

In this episode of Becoming Moms, Dr. Sterling sits down with authors, Amy Beacom and Sue Campbell, to discuss their book – The Parental Leave Playbook. Their unique, evidence-based approach to the parental leave transition helps new parents navigate leave and return, like pro’s. We cover everything from when to start planning for your leave (it’s sooner than you might think!) to dealing with an employer that just doesn’t “get it”. Whether you are currently pregnant and preparing for your leave or navigating the transition from a “working person” to a “working parent” this conversation is a must listen!

“The Parental Leave Playbook helps parents take control of their leave and make the most of what’s considered a career time-out, but is actually a vital “time-in” for your life. If you’re an expecting or new parent concerned about how your leave and return plans will affect your visibility, candidacy for promotion, work relationships, and performance (not to mention your identity and home life), this book will guide you into the smoothest transition possible. Most importantly, this book will help you as you grow and strengthen yourself and your family while remaining a professional.” – Center for Parental Leave Leadership
