How to Navigate the Minefield of Motherhood and Career

Are you a female founder juggling a startup and kids or thinking of having a baby soon?

Allyson Downey, co-founder of weeSpring (NYC '13), knows how tough it is to navigate pregnancy and parenthood. She took her own experience, plus the wisdom she gathered interviewing 75 women who have "successfully traversed the minefield that is having a baby while having a career," and put it all together in a hands-on guide called, Here's the Plan: Your Practical, Tactical Guide to Advancing Your Career During Pregnancy and Parenthood.

"For many women in their 20's and 30's, the greatest professional hurdle they'll need to overcome has little to do with their work life. The most focused, confident, and ambitious women can find themselves derailed by a tiny little thing: a new baby. Here's the Plan offers an inspiring roadmap for working mothers steering their careers through the parenting years."
