About Carry Strong

A groundbreaking approach to successfully navigating your pregnancy at work

Pregnancy is a profound journey. Navigating it while working—from figuring out how to tell your boss you’re pregnant to squeezing in doctors’ appointments between meetings, all while working even harder to prove yourself—can be a push and pull between a desire for privacy and the need for support. The good news is, it’s possible to thrive in both spaces. Carry Strong offers a new approach that will transform your pregnancy years at work from something to “get through” into a career opportunity to embrace with confidence.

Employing original research, expert advice, and real-life stories from Olympic athletes, CEOs, and hundreds of amazing working mothers across the country, executive and professor StephanieKramer outlines essential principles for navigating pregnancy and work simultaneously. She shows you how to embrace a different perspective, find your balance, cultivate community, communicate your needs, and navigate the shift in identity from working woman to working mother. Along the way, you’ll identify career considerations to make at each phase of pregnancy, starting with the moment you decide you want to become a working mom-to-be.

In Carry Strong, Kramer flips the script: this isn’t powering through pregnancy at work. It is about being powerful while pregnant at work.

Stephanie Kramer is an author, mother, and Chief Human Resources Officer at L'Oreal USA. She teaches management communication in the graduate business program at the Fashion Institute of Technology, and serves on the program’s Industry Advisory Board. Stephanie has two young children.
