From Boardroom to Baby provides emotional encouragement and practical guidance for career women who are opting out of the workforce to stay home with their children.

A recent Gallup poll concluded that stay-at-home moms were significantly less likely than working moms to consider their lives "thriving" and experienced higher rates of depression. Even so, millions of mothers are choosing to put their careers on hold and stay home with their children.

From Boardroom to Baby shatters the stereotypes associated with "staying home" and empowers new moms to blaze their own unique paths through motherhood and beyond.

Along with a thoughtful map and modern-day tools to help moms carve out meaning and purpose in their new roles, From Boardroom to Baby offers:

  • Heartfelt stories of the author's own journey from a Fortune 500 company to life on the home front.
  • Mindful exercises that prompt soul searching and self-discovery.
  • Expert advice from a mental health counselor.
  • Meaningful affirmations that promote grace and strength throughout motherhood.

    "Kristin Helms writes a brilliant depiction of the guilty struggle moms experience when making the transition from the hustle of the career world to the hustle of the domestic world of motherhood. From being in a world filled with external recognition to being immersed in a world of internal validation and contentment with one's own self is a skill. Learning how to thrive and find value, happiness, contentment, and peace with being a mother while your children are young is eloquently outlined in this book that every career driven stay at home mom should read!"
