"Just wanted to share my feedback following the Forum yesterday.
Even though I have been on maternity leave once before, I found it really helpful and will definitely do things differently this time around based on what I learned in the Forum.
I expected a room full of people with presenters up the front but there were just 6 of us sitting around in a circle with 2 facilitators. I think I got a lot more out the session in this format as we were able to interact as a group and ask questions.
The facilitators were great – they both speak from experience (personally and professionally) and it was helpful to be able to have a mini coaching group session with one of them at the end of the morning.
It was also great to be able to walk away with a toolkit booklet that I can use for this next session of maternity leave.
Attending a session a few months prior to maternity leave would be the most valuable time for someone to go, but I could also see benefit in going fairly soon after returning to work (or a few months prior while still on maternity leave) in order to help with the transition."
