Maternity Leave… Sort of!
Today I spent my last day with clients, completing a physician lunch talking about all things women’s health, pelvic floor, and perinatal care, as well as doing reports and generally getting ready to step back from the clinic for maternity leave!
Currently 39 weeks and 3 days (according to the OB), and feeling well makes it more difficult to feel ‘done’ with clients. The best part of work is working with clients, so stepping back is proving to be as difficult as I had imagined it to be.
I have been taking comfort in the fact that over the past 2.5 years I have been able to build the business in my vision of providing the highest quality care, in a family-friendly and family-centered inviting facility. Our team of therapists are definitely my work family. Each therapist is compassionate, provides comprehensive care, and are exceptional caring and thoughtful individuals. I have the greatest confidence in their ability to help each client achieve their rehabilitation goals so each person can get back to doing what they love, with the people they love.
It has been an absolute pleasure to work with each and every client.
We have been chuckling at the clinic wondering when I will be ‘back’ after baby, and for a business owner maternity leave is not typical. At this time the plan is to return to the Perinatal Exercise Group 1-2x/week in July or August – so stay tuned for those announcements! As for client-care, when I return to to seeing clients initially I will only be seeing clients that I have seen previously.
