Currently pregnant and up for promotion to Executive Director. My manager is supportive and eager to help. He has been vocal and helping me build relationships w his boss and peers. At how many weeks would you announce? I don’t want to halt the process but be honest that I’ll be on leave starting June - November. And honestly, my focus will change.

In the same boat. I'm starting my third trimester this week and haven't told anyone at work yet. I'm up for promotion and my performance year ends in March. I'll be off from March to August most likely. My plan is to tell my leadership and project this week and make sure to be a great advocate for yourself. My husband reminds me that the promotion is based on all the great work I've done so far and not for the 4 months that I'll be off. Having that in the back of my mind helps but ngl I'm a little worried about the impact on my career. Congrats on your pregnancy and good luck mama 🤗

I told my team at 6 weeks and the broader office at 12. I am having my second in just over two years and figure that if work can’t see that I can do my job well and be a mom then this isn’t the place for me.

Those decisions get made in like May so you won’t be able to avoid entirely but I’d say wait a bit and tell around 6 months. 3 months is plenty of time to plan for transition.

I’m currently up for MD and 15 weeks pregnant. I’ve been very transparent with my leadership. I trust them enough (based on years of evidence) that I am certain if it doesn’t happen it wasn’t because of the pregnancy.

Me and my wife moved to US in the last few years and recently had a baby. Both of us work in relatively stressful jobs.

They haven’t seen too many cases of children going to daycare in India in their family. Who else has faced this issue, and any thoughts on resolving the same? This is causing a strain b/w us.
