Returning to work after maternity leave

Rebuilding your confidence and knowing your rights

About this event

Coming back from maternity leave is a minefield, not only from a practical (and legal) perspective, but from an emotional one too.

Let us help you get hold of some of those thoughts and reframe them, and teach you a few exercises you can do yourself to boost your confidence.

Join the next in our series of free online webinars on Tuesday 5th July from 10am -11am where experts from Machins Solicitors and Coach & Bloom will be providing professional, practical and easy to understand guidance on maternity leave protection and rights alongside rebuilding confidence when returning to the workplace.

  • Typical mind-set traps (and identifying if they are helpful or not)
  • Coaching yourself around those thoughts
  • A few confidence hacks to play with to boost your self esteem
