This how-to guide is aimed at those becoming parents while they're working. Those who are wondering how they will still do their job as well as being a parent. Who are worried about having a conversation about changing their working pattern and not sure how to approach it. Who don't know where to start with creating a return-to-work plan.

It's designed to help them with all these questions and more, guiding them every step of the way - from before they head off on parental leave to while they're away through to their return.

Catherine Oliver has not only been there herself but has supported thousands of parents choosing to take on the dual roles of parent and employee.

It will also be of interest to managers who so often find themselves worried about doing or saying the wrong thing - with notes especially for them at the end of every chapter.

Industry Reviews

I loved this book. It feels as though you are talking to a friend about what to expect and how to prepare for the future as a working parent. It covers your concerns, and even things you may not of thought about yet, and helps you plan how to manage them. It guides you through the potential challenges you may encounter in an easy digestible way. - Amazon 5*

As a non parent, but a CEO of a technology company, I found this a huge help in how to manage staff and expectations, and how to help our team through some of the most life changing events of their lives. This book is not just a great book for the target audience, parents to be, but a great book for those who manage people - Amazon 5*

The main thing that struck me was how much useful information it contains, but how simple and accessible it is to read - breaking things down to digestible chunks. When planning for the most important time of your life, this is an invaluable guide to navigating parenthood and work - Amazon 5*
