Are you implying women who focus solely on their baby during their maternity leave are lazy?
I understand if you have to do this to keep your high powered job. Especially in this “man’s world”.
I chose an alternative route. I took 4 months maternity leave to focus solely on my baby. I negotiated a part time schedule of 30 hours a week afterwards, and I was able to keep that schedule for 3 years.
I was able to do this because I proved myself for years prior to getting pregnant and they wanted to keep me on as a subject matter expert. Now I’m back full time and providing great value for the team.
There should be a place for both types of moms in corporate America.
