Anyone split their maternity leave? How did it go? Any tips? I’m the lead associate on a trial team going to hearing in June (trial only comes up every 2-3 years in my field). I’m due in December so was looking to do my disability separate from my parental leave (take Dec-Feb off for disability, then again July-Sept for firm-sponsored parental; my husband gets 12 weeks, so we’ll switch off with some parent help). HR was like “technically you can do that but no one does.”

Would you accept an offer from BAH for 20k more as a Lead Associate? I’m hesitant because BAH benefits are worse if not the same where I am and there is no bonus structure. Thoughts?
