Work pattern on return:
Message On returning from maternity leave, my employer was very supportive. I was reallocated to most of my previous clients, which made the settling in period much easier, and everyone I work with has been happy to work around my new part time working pattern. My workload has been gradually increasing but so far I haven't had to stay late (which would be tricky with childcare) or work in the evenings/weekends. That is likely to change in the future to some extent as new projects start, but I feel I've settled back in fairly easily for now. If anything I've not been as busy as I would have expected, but that helps when being sleep deprived and getting used to juggling the work/life balance with childcare. The challenge now is to see how things develop over the next 6-12 months.
