Having a baby is a huge change in your life and one that comes with a range of emotional and physical challenges. Rewarding as it is, being a mother can be one of the hardest roles we take on and today, with families living a long way apart, support can be limited and expectations very high. Coaching helps you to deal with the challenges you may face by offering a safe and objective forum in which to discuss any fears, issues, concerns or challenges. The point at which you might lean towards such support varies from woman to woman but typical times include;
Pregnancy coaching – coaching helps you to prepare for your new role as a mother, including any concerns and fears you may have. It will help you with leaving work to go on maternity leave, preparation for birth and life with your new baby.
Maternity leave coaching – what do you want to achieve on maternity leave? Many mothers want to enjoy the time focusing solely on their baby, some want to ensure they do something for themselves alongside being a mum and find it difficult to do so, some want to use the time to retrain in a different career or think about starting their own business. Coaching helps you to achieve those goals and maintain momentum whilst being kept busy with your new baby.
Return to work coaching – Employers want to see confident returners which can seem daunting when you may not have worked for several months or years. But it doesn’t take long to regain confidence with focused coaching. Return to work coaching also helps you to deal with issues such as how to find the right childcare to suit your values and your circumstances, finding a support network, how to juggle work and family effectively, the importance of a strong partnership and how to manage the working mothers ‘guilt’. For those that have been out of work for a while or are changing jobs; understanding what your key skills, achievements and strengths are and how to structure your CV are vital for securing a new position. For those that have been back at work for a while and want to chat through their feelings; coaching provides a safe and non judgemental environment in which to do so and offers constructive support to help you manage your choices successfully.
Mother me-time – Mothers need time to themselves. You can reclaim yours by understanding what makes you happy as an individual – something we often forget amidst the nurturing. Coaching helps you to regain the me-time you deserve.
