Lauren Smith Brody discusses her new book, “The Fifth Trimester: The Working Mom’s Guide to Style, Sanity, and Success After Baby.”
Parental leave policies and childcare struggles are increasingly part of the national conversation, making The Fifth Trimester more relevant than ever. The first three trimesters (and the fourth — those blurry newborn days) are for the baby, but the Fifth Trimester is when the working mom is born. The Fifth Trimester is a practical, funny, tells-it-like-it-is guide for new moms coping with the demands of the real world after having a baby.
Lauren’s work has been featured on Good Morning America, CNN.com, Forbes, Fast Company, Harvard Business Review, Glamour, Refinery29, and dozens more outlets for business leaders and mothers. Prior to writing The Fifth Trimester, Lauren had a 16-year career in magazine publishing, most recently as the longtime executive editor of Glamour magazine. The mother of two young sons, she is committed to helping businesses and new parents work together to create a more family-friendly workplace culture.
