A spot for moms (and expectant moms) working in the industry to share their experiences and offer support.

I didn’t have much mom guilt after my first kid, or even after my second. I loved returning to work. Now I’m back after my 3rd and I’m torn like never before. Words of advice? All I want to do is...

What week did you guys stop traveling for clients? I’ll be 23 weeks tomorrow and still racking up those airline miles weekly.

Considering moving to Hudson Valley, and commuting to NYC. Curious how I’ll see my 1 year old during daylight hours, and also still show up for work with a 3 hr RT commute. Anyone doing this? Advice?

Daughter just turned 1; we’ve been co-sleeping, but need to transition her to her crib in her room. Any tips? She doesn’t even nap in the crib. But this Momma needs help!

Anyone in here NY-based? I’m feeling really stagnant and wondering if NY is calling. The market I’m in is lame and there isn’t much opportunity at my current spot. Keep it real - what’s it like?

As a mom of two young ones, I’ve found my workplace confidence level fading more recently. Maybe it’s partly mom brain, who knows. Anyone have a recommendation for helpful books on this topic?

I’m pregnant! Just want to share because I’m so excited. Also, it took only 2 months at 35...everyone’s journey is different but I wish I hadn’t bought into the fear-mongering bs.

Been back from maternity leave for four months and while I was out I got a new boss and my role evolved (not surprising, but not entirely what I want either). How long would you stay before looking?

Do/would you travel on your child’s birthday? Extended family celebration is happening on the weekend. Does your child’s age matter? (She’ll be 4)
