Personal/Professional Balance

Major topics for the first year of life are maternity leave, breastfeeding, and childcare.  In this section, maternity leave will be discussed from beginning to end: the planning stages, the actual leave time itself, and returning to work.  The section on infant nutrition will include current recommendations for breastfeeding, advanced planning and strategies, and the logistics of maintaining a milk supply in the context of a demanding clinical and/or academic schedule.
