    Hi, does anyone know where I would stand on requesting a phased return after maternity and whether they have to give it to me? I have been off for 10 months and have a TLR and am quite anxious about trying to go full time straight away after so long out of the system. I had PND and whilst I am ok now I am worried about starting to feel out of control again if i try to go from nothing to 100mph overnight! Thanks
     
  2. I had a phased return and my head is really understanding. I went back 3 days for half a term plus a couple of weeks, then full time. It was really helpful to me to make the transition, as I wasn't full time until my LO was 1. It's still a shock going back full time but it really softened the blow, and made a much more positive experience.
