Motherhood is a key stage in the lives of women and men. What is at stake can’t even be compared to the most exciting professional challenges. The welcome of a new life, the emotion of vulnerability, the access to parental responsibility, the promise of happiness, the joy of loving... but also the anxiety, the fatigue, the laborious adaptation, the tensions within the couple, and sometimes the suffering.
From this perspective, the maternity leave is designed to allow women employees to experience the physical and emotional upheaval of birth outside the rationality of the company. The maternity leave is highly regulated by law and has long been established in practice. Its length seems to correspond to a balance between the needs of mothers and the constraints of professional life. However, it remains a stumbling block in women's careers. Few companies manage to create a framework of trust that allows their employees to live serenely through the key stages of the maternity leave and the subsequent return to their professional responsibilities. For many women, maternity is a turning point in their professional commitment.
