Discover others’ experiences whether positive or negative and review the data confirming the commercial costs to businesses of ‘not addressing the motherhood transition effectively’

This event will also provide an insight into the woman’s’ needs at each phase when returning to work and ideas about tools to use when coaching those returning to work.
