Madeline asks, "I'm going to work next week for the first time since maternity leave, what is the best day to start?"
A: Starting on a Wednesday or Thursday is our recommendation. This will give you a chance to get into a routine and before you know it, you are back at home for the weekend to recover. When Monday comes around, you will be rested and ready to go with a few days of experience.
Many women benefit from a back-to-work lactation consultation. Our Breastfeeding Center offers "Back-to-Work" consults that include a customized written plan to aid your transition back to the workforce.
