The Expecting Entrepreneur™ specializes in advising early stage, high growth founders as they navigate parental leave. We are known for comprehensively addressing both the business side of preparing for leave (operation considerations, financial planning, communication with clients and investors) as well as the personal side (building postpartum support networks, perinatal mental health, the transition back to work).  

We frequently partner with entrepreneur support organizations (VC, incubators, accelerators, membership organizations) so that entrepreneurs can access parental leave information from the experts they trust to guide them in other aspects of their business growth.
