Ep. 6.2: Paid Parental Leave Is Only the Beginning feat. Dr. Amy Beacom & Sue Campbell Weird Mom

You'll hear me say it time and time again: paid parental leave is essential. But even though paid leave is important, it is not the only aspect of support that should be looked at for parents post partum. On this week's episode, I had the pleasure of talking with Dr. Amy Beacom (founder and CEO of Center for Parental Leave Leadership) and Sue Campbell (Communications Director for the Center for Parental Leave Leadership) who have coauthored a book called The Parental Leave Playbook: 10 Touchpoints to Transition Smoothly, Strengthen Your Family, and Continue Building your Career.  This book, the only of its kind, is a great resource for anyone who plans to take leave from their job to have a child whether it be your first or your fifth child. Join us as we talk about parental leave in the U.S., our own parental leave experiences, and how the Center for Parental Leave Leadership strives to coach employers on how to better support its working parents.ReferencesCenter for Parental Leave Leadership website: Parental Leave Playbook: Click hereBook Description: The Parental Leave Playbook helps parents take control of their leave and make the most of what’s considered a career time-out, but is actually a vital “time-in” for your work and life. If you’re an expecting or new parent concerned about how your leave and return plans will affect your visibility, candidacy for promotion, work relationships, and performance (not to mention your identity and home life), this book will guide you into the smoothest transition possible. Most importantly, this book will help you as you grow and strengthen yourself and your family while remaining a professional.——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–Weird Mom Website: Weird Mom Instagram: Weird Mom Facebook: Mom TikTok:
