Why 4th Mom Memos?

This bi-weekly newsletter applies management strategies and leadership lessons to navigating maternity leaves and parenthood. The goal is to help parents be better prepared to manage this (ongoing) life change.

Support a new conversation

I started 4th Mom because I’ve realized how ill-equipped many new parents are for this transition. This ranges from unexpected bills to emotional rollercoasters or a lack of access to work leave or social support.

The broader objective is to spark discussions about the new parent experience to build empathy and challenge misconceptions.
