Maternity Leave: An Opportunity for Your Business

How can we view maternity leave as an opportunity in our business (or career)?

5 Reminders When Treating Chronic Pain

Pelvic PT Rising: The pelvic health tools to make you a better clinician and/or a more successful business owner. We want every single pelvic health practitioner to be more confident and successful in your practice and career!

  • Clinical Courses: Game-changing online courses to make you more confident, challenge your thinking and improve patient outcomes

  • Business Resources: Helping 500+ pelvic health practitioners confidently start, grow and build their dream business!


Many of us first start our own business after a maternity leave. Our priorities have shifted. We want more time freedom. Or we have a new passion for pelvic health after having experienced life as a patient.

For those of us who get pregnant after starting our business, we have a few different options.

We can be ok with just shutting down during that time. It takes careful planning, financial discipline and a plan for both patient care and marketing, but you can return to a thriving practice.

You can find someone to temporarily cover your patient load. You'll have to bring them in, get them up to speed, and have all the timing work out in order to make this work.

Or you can put your foot on the gas to hire, onboard and train a team before you leave. But make sure it's not just a knee-jerk reaction to being pregnant! If you didn't dream about growing beyond yourself, this is not the time or reason to make that decision.

No matter what you choose, your business is resilient. You'll be able to return to a thriving business and continue to grow!

As Nicole said in the full episode:

"We want to be able to still implement our plan while we still have the capacity to do so." - Nicole Cozean
