Mama 🐟, how was your maternity leave? We're trying to conceive and I have all sorts of anxiety about being pregnant at work, feeling exhausted and not being able to keep up, my all male creative team being awkward about my belly, etc. there is not a single soul who looks pregnant at work and I'm excited about being a parent but terrified of the work implications.
