As a fellow small business owner expecting my first bay-bee this summer, I understand the excitement and challenges that come with trying to plan for an actual baby while trying to take leave from your first baby—your business. Maternity leave is a precious time for both you and your growing family, but as a business owner, it can feel very overwhelming and requires some extra planning.
