Hello + welcome to this tiny space on the internet! I created this blog (+ changed the name twice since) 14 years ago as a creative outlet from my career in the emergency room as a PA. After spending the past 7 (or so) years on social media outlets, I have decided to delete all of the ones associated with this blog and get back to the heart of blogging.

Episode 45: The Transition Back to Work After Parental Leave with Kimberly Didrikson
A mother’s fear and emotional struggle of going back to work once they have a baby has gotten worse and worse over the last few years. It’s almost impossible not to experience these feelings considering the cost of childcare and lack of maternity leave options. My guest, Kimberly Didrikson, created a company called Learning Motherhood to help mothers navigate that transitional time more smoothly. Leaving your baby at home will never be easy, but there lies hope in these tips and resources she provides to ease the anxieties that mothers feel.
Kimberly Didrikson is the founder of Learning Motherhood, a consulting agency and online community platform that helps women returning to work after having a baby from feeling overwhelmed with motherhood and career to thriving in navigating the changes that occur when becoming a mother and also pursuing a career.
