Where to go after the decree
If your decision to go to work is final, the next step is to determine how to deal with the child. There are several options: to entrust a child to a nanny, to give to a kindergarten or to grandparents. It is necessary to weigh everything in advance and answer the following questions: who will take and take the child from the kindergarten, who will take care of the child, if suddenly he falls ill and many other nuances. There are many nuances, so it's worth it to be responsive and attentive to them.
Exit to the previous place of work. This is the solution most often adopted by a young mother, if the care of the decree occurred smoothly, mutually on both sides, she is expected at her former workplace. And then everything is fine, because it's foolish to leave where you are happy. But even in this case, you will not always be able to avoid unforeseen situations. During your absence, many changes occurred at work. Half of the team changed, the former leader was promoted, the dress code changed, and so on. But this is not a reason to panic. There is always a way out of the situation. The main thing is a positive attitude. Show interest to the new collective, let the acquaintance be held with smiles and mutual respect, then your colleagues will appreciate your zeal and show understanding and help.
If you decide to look for a new job for yourself, prepare for meetings with your superiors. At the interview it is important to note that the child will be looked after by someone, that during the maternity leave you are engaged in self-development, followed the novelties in your professional field, attended courses, trainings, etc. The result will depend on how convincing you will be in your arguments. And the main thing is not to surrender, even if a refusal is given in this position in a particular company. Remember, the time will come, and there will be a place of work that will be "native" for you.
