Rewind Study

Many mothers in the Netherlands return back to work after maternity leave. When doing so, mothers have to separate from their infant, readjust back to work, and balance being a parent and being an employee. However, how mothers deal with all these changes and what emotions and thoughts this evokes, is not yet well understood. Therefore, our research team aims to develop a new questionnaire to measure emotions and thoughts mothers might have when returning to work after maternity leave. By doing so, we hope to increase our knowledge on how mothers in the Netherlands deal with going back to work after welcoming a new baby into their lives.
