Here are tips and tools for managing life after maternity leave.
Based on the popular blog The Babyjuggler: Three kids, Two jobs, One life, winner of the December 2008 "Best of the British Mummy Blogger Carnival", this audiobook gives you the lowdown on how to survive your return to the world of work after the birth of your first baby.
Everyone knows women can "have it all" these days, but this guide shows you how to avoid the "doing it all" syndrome, which leaves so many working mothers totally exhausted and stressed.
Author Sara Lloyd is the mother of three children under six and also works for a major publishing company, in charge of their Digital Publishing Division.
In her own words she is "a working mum of three. That statement in itself is already loaded. Being a mum should be regarded as a job in and of itself, of course... but that phrase is always used to describe someone who (possibly quite madly) undertakes paid work as well as the unpaid / highly versatile sort that comes under the general banner of 'mothering'. That's what I do."

It may mention Mums a lot but any working parent will find this funny, wise and just the right dose of reality to help with "good enough" parenting....
How to juggle \"three kids, two jobs, one life\" - the recurring circus metaphors are both apt and catchy in this clear-sighted, practical advice from a successful working mum who has retained her sense of humour. As she says, in this business if you don't laugh, you'll cry!.
Thank you, thank you Sara Lloyd for making this such an easy to listen to and very very informative book. I am just setting out on the baby juggling road - I love my baby but I also want and need to work. This book gives real practical advice for REAL parents - not the 'have it all' celebrity types out there. I have laughed out loud at parts of it and taken notes at times too! If in doubt I recommend this book to all parents even the ones 'just' working at home (I salute you).
