Description - The Working Gal's Guide to Babyville by Paige Hobey
A girl's guide for the new millennium - the one book every working gal needs to read before, during and after she experiences new motherhood. You're an independent career woman suddenly dropped into the chaos of Babyville. You have a newborn to care for, three months (if you're lucky) of unstructured time to fill, a work decision to make (to go back to full-time? part-time? job share?), childcare to acquire and family finances to balance. You need someone to make you laugh during the hard times, a doctor to call in the middle of the night and a good career counsellor to boot. Never fear! Sure to become the gold standard resource during that crazy first year, "The Working Gal's Guide to Babyville" combines stories and sisterly advice from the trenches, infant care information and tips from a paediatrician, and career and budget guidance from a finance pro.
From getting baby to sleep through the night to making the most of maternity leave, from weighing work options to finding childcare, from networking with new parents to emotionally transitioning from "Ms Independent" to "Mum", it offers desperately-needed, easy-to-execute strategies and expert solutions on all manner of Year One issues. The essential guidebook for today's busy career mums; it's every bit as hip, smart and savvy as the women who'll be reading it.
