Baby On Board

Brought to you by:

A LinkedIn Live series dedicated to discussing the various stages of maternity leave — before, during and after.

A must-attend for female financial advisors in the midst of maternity leave, planning to start a family or navigating life as a working mom.

This series is also great for employers and firm owners wanting to understand a bit more about the process so they can better understand their employees’ needs.

Worried about navigating motherhood while juggling your career as a financial planner?

Join Hannah Moore, CFP® for a new series that takes a deep dive into pregnancy and maternity leave within financial planning.

You’ll get the resources you need to help you plan for having a baby, maternity leave, meet the shifts that come with parenthood, and help you adjust once it’s time to return to work.

Hi! Hannah here —

Motherhood is hard. I didn’t talk about my first pregnancy because I was afraid of how it would impact my career — or change how my clients saw me.

My second pregnancy, I waited a long time to tell my clients and struggled with a difficult and complicated pregnancy. I also had a less than desirable maternity leave and felt like I was continually shifting identity between mom and firm owner. 

And now with a third baby on the way, I still find myself struggling to talk about motherhood as a financial planner because I have more questions than answers. 

Can you relate?

As women and as financial planners who want to build and prioritize a family, we’re faced with a major challenge: Do we prioritize our careers or our families? 

So many of us worry that we’ll have to sacrifice time as a parent to build our careers — or that we will have to sacrifice our careers to be a good parent. 

The bottom line? It’s tough to be a working parent — especially a working mom. There’s just no way around it. 

That’s exactly why I want to invite you to join me in my new Baby on Board Series — where I’ll have an open conversation with other women like you about the struggles of pregnancy, motherhood, your career, and everything in between.

I can’t guarantee we’ll have all the answers, but I can promise you we’ll have genuine conversations that touch on the core of what it means to be a parent and a financial planner.

Baby on Board Series

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27TH — THURSDAY, OCTOBER 6TH

Brought to you by:

Attend 4 live workshops on:

If I’ve learned anything over the last few years, it’s that coming together and having these much-needed discussions with other women can make a real impact. The pressures of motherhood are real, and when you add a career on top of it, that pressure is only amplified. 

It can feel lonely and isolating and, sometimes, all you want is to hear from someone who just gets it

This series will give you the space to explore what it means to be a parent and a CFP®professional.

We’ll be talking about the deeper issues of motherhood — from infertility to maternity leave, to re-entering the workforce — by bringing together women who know exactly what you’re going through. 

They’ll share their stories and include insights into what’s worked and what hasn’t as they navigate this new chapter in their lives and careers.

WORKSHOP TOPICS

During this live session, we’ll discuss how to communicate your pregnancy with your employers and clients to ensure a smooth transition into motherhood. You deserve to have uninterrupted time with your child, and this session will help you sort out the logistics (like planning for leave) to make it happen.

 

We’ll also be covering topics like struggles and fears around being a new mom (especially as it concerns infertility and miscarriages, something I’ve struggled with myself), and navigating the uncertainty that comes with pregnancy. 

In this live session, we’ll be discussing the challenges that come with maternity leave, which include: 

  • Struggling with self-worth in light of being away from work
  • Navigating recovery and unexpected issues post-pregnancy
  • The difficulties of identifying what we want and need post-pregnancy 
  • The sheer joys that come with motherhood

During this LinkedIn meeting we’ll talk about the challenges new moms face when coming back to work, like breastfeeding and pumping, employer support, and juggling the responsibilities of motherhood and work.

This live session will connect you with other women professionals who are going to grow or have grown a family. We’ll start with a live Q+A session, followed by breakout sessions, and then we’ll come back together to wrap it all up and touch on any lingering thoughts or concerns. 

Zoom breakout groups include:

  • Planning for maternity someday
  • Navigating Infertility and loss
  • Currently pregnant and preparing for maternity leave
  • Working moms who have reentered the workforce

By the end of this live series, you’ll have connections with other women who are right where you are — whether you are in the planning stages, struggling with infertility, pregnant, or navigating being a working mom.

These events are sponsored by Orion, who supports the growing industry of Independent RIAs.

I only wish I had something like this when I started my motherhood journey — and it’s something I’m longing for as I approach my due date. I’m convinced there isn’t one answer, that there isn’t just one certain way to navigate our careers and motherhood at the same time. 

There are hundreds of them, and as we connect with other women and parents, and hear their stories to see what’s possible in our own lives, that’s where we find the answers. 

I sincerely hope to see you there.
