Own Your (Pregnant) Career

For professional parents who want to
return to work after baby


Visibly pregnant women are judged as being…

… less committed to their jobs
… less dependable
… less authoritative
… more emotional and irrational

when compared to otherwise equal,
non-pregnant women.

That’s why pregnancy is the right time to take control of your career.

When you do, you’ll find...

Management continues to see you as the professional you’ve proven yourself to be rather than 'mommy tracking' your role and the projects you work on

Colleagues champion your strengths and stand up for your needs even when you’re not in the room

Ways to manage your calendar so you can find time to focus on the things that matter at work and at home without burning yourself out before baby’s arrival

You’re well equipped to plan for a smooth transition from office life to maternity leave, and then back again

You’re amazing at what you do.
Being pregnant doesn’t suddenly change that fact.

But sometimes unconscious biases against pregnant parents can hold you back.
Don't let it.


Own Your (Pregnant) Career

A course designed to help pregnant parents build the foundation of their after-baby career by taking control of the narrative right now.

Use it as your handbook for preventing maternal bias from taking over your career.

Course opens on July 26.

Imagine feeling confident you'll return to a career you actually want after baby

Dedicating a few hours of prep time can be the difference between ending up in a less-than-you-dreamed-of career and continuing along the path you wanted after baby.

This course will help you navigate this uncertain time in your career.
