After enjoying an incredibly successful 16-year career in the magazine publishing world—working her way up to the #2 spot as Executive Editor for Glamour Magazine, Lauren left to write about The Fifth Trimester, the time she describes as when the working mom is born.  

And while I’m not a mom, I’m incredibly fascinated by this transition It’s no big secret that it’s a struggle to have children and go back to work. We do not live in a particularly supportive culture when it comes to working and being a mother in tandem. For many, challenges persist when back in the workplace which is why Lauren set out to write a book—a book that would connect the dots and serve new mothers a collective post-pregnancy mentor.
