The Fifth Trimester is every Jewish mom’s new best friend: a brilliant guide to help mothers cope with the demands of the real world after Baby arrives. The first three trimesters (and the fourth — those blurry newborn days) are for the baby, but the Fifth Trimester is when the working mom is born. And as we know from research by the Jewish Women’s Archive, there are more Jewish women in the workforce than ever at higher levels of professional leadership. (Indeed they make up a bigger percentage than Jewish men.) But the return to work is rife with questions: When should I go back? Flex-time or full-time? How do I manage an “I want to quit” attack? Can I really get to 50/50 at home? What’s the best childcare? Where will I pump? Is it possible to look like I slept for eight hours? Based on insight from 700+ moms plus expert advice, The Fifth Trimester tackles every personal and professional detail with wit, warmth, and big-hearted mentorship. Jewish moms get it done!
