• Have you felt lonely or anxious before or during your maternity leave, or worried that you will fall behind in your work when starting a family?
  • Are you concerned about how having a family will impact your career?
  • Are you a professional with children seeking more family and work life integration?

Pros&Babes is an Edmonton-based initiative connecting working mothers and career-minded mothers before, during and after maternity leave. We provide a forum for meaningful discussion, networking and support for parents who love their families but also value their careers.

Participants enjoy stimulating discussion, the opportunity to develop career strategies, improved work/family life integration and benefits to their mental health.

Find out why career-minded moms love our programs.
