I’ve been asked to weigh in on how to improve my firms parental leave policy. It’s currently 8 weeks paid for birth parent with an extra week for each year at the firm (up to 12 weeks total) and 2 weeks paid for non-birth parent. I’m in a major city, firm is a boutique that has been around a very long time. What would you suggest? Any studies or research you’ve seen recently on trends in parental leave policies also helpful. I’d like to have some sort of data to back up what I recommend. TIA!
Moms, any recommendations on nanny cams? I would like to get one for the bedroom (over baby’s snoo) and one of the living room. I looked into nanit but can’t figure out whether it works without the breathing wear or not. Thank you!
Need some help (!!) from the women who work in tech in this bowl. The company I work for has a parental leave policy that is only 2 weeks paid leave (pretty sad..) I am proposing we update this to be more competitive. I need other companies that are: 1. US policies 2. Funding under 200 million (not big tech)If anyone is aware of policies that would be helpful in my argument please message me or drop a comment below with: 1. Name of start-up 2. Amount of current funding 3. Parental leave policy.
My best friend & I got pregnant around the same time. We didn’t know the other was even trying - just a happy surprise. But now I am going through a miscarriage and I don’t know how to feel. Lots of jealousy, but I’m still so happy for them. I knew it was a possibility (1/4 pregnancies end in miscarriage) but why did it have to be me? I don’t want to go to her gender reveal next week, it’s still just so painful but I feel like a horrible person for harboring these negative feelings towards her.
