Deloitte fish: were you able to successfully expense a crib mattress and hatch baby white sound machine with your well being subsidy?

I wouldn't think a crib mattress could be? Haven't tried, but the jogging stroller apparently can be, so that'll eat up most of my subsidy

Can pregnant people take the sleep version of liquid IV? The hydration ones I know are fine but wasn’t sure about the sleepy ones..


Moms please send me some love and best advice. Leaving the hospital this morning without my baby as he is in the nicu and likely to be there for a week or two. I haven’t even been able to hold him yet. Tips for staying positive and how to best support the baby? E.g., seems overkill to sit in the nicu 8 hours a day but is that what I should do? Obviously I’m pumping for him. It’s just very sad to be leaving today without him but I know it’s what he needs. We do live nearby the hospital.


Folks, can we adopt a child as a single person?


Anyone here feel like they were performing at a lower level after they had a kid? Can’t work from home anymore and I just feel like my mind is often not fully “there” when I’m in the office


Unpopular opinion. I’m a young woman of color. I think we’re all focusing on race when it comes to violence in America when the issue is actually with men. Men of all colors have been terrorizing America yet everyone is arguing about white supremacy.


New Dad here, Just found out my wife is pregnant. We’re excited! What books/podcasts can you recommend for getting ready for this adventure?

The anniversary of a parent’s passing was last week and my aunt chose the day of to drop the bomb that she has the same terminal disease. Up until now I thought it only hit the males (I’m a woman). I am frazzled and can’t work. Is it unprofessional to disclose this to my managers and ask for today and tomorrow off?


Women should stop taking birth control. At least it should not be the default. Women have one (+) child once in 9 months, while one man can impregnate 10+ women A DAY. Why not unload the gun? Let’s start having conversations with men and how they should do vasectomies. We are being paid less, in some places it is illegal for us to have abortions, if bc fails we also are faced with hard decisions to keep it or not, not everyone wants kids. It is time for real equality and men doing their part.


I’ve started thinking about children as luxury products 😂 They are CRAZY expensive!! My financial spreadsheets do not like when I start estimating the costs and reduced long term investment opportunities. My significant other’s family (Chinese) would probably kill us (or at least me) if we don’t have a kid. We are in Boston and the costs are very high. We are both 26, post grad school, combined making ~ 300k/year. No debt.


This weekend a good friend (who recently became a mom) was talking about her brother, who she said “was too selfish to have a kid,” despite knowing I don’t ever want kids. Anyone else hear comments like that and hurt? Simultaneously also want to yell that wanting to make a person who looks just like you is even more selfish?


I have been on ADHD meds for as long as I can remember and just found out I’m pregnant. These meds are not recommended during pregnancy, but I have no idea how I’m going to manage my job and billable hour requirement without them. Any thoughts, suggestions, or recommendations would be greatly appreciated!


I give massive kudos to all the parents out there juggling work and home life. But it’s starting to feel like I pulled the short stick by not having a kid. Really struggling to pick up all of the slack from all of the colleagues that do have kids and feel like the expectation is that parents should turn off while the rest are working from 7am - 2am everyday to make up for it.


Lately I am feeling my life is excessively hard on me. From a difficult childhood to loosing a parent at a you age was really disturbing. I am going through therapy and my doctor want me to take drugs

What jobs are there that: 1. Pay $500k+ USD 2. Have a 9-5 schedule or less than 40 hours a week of work


I’m not entirely happy at the firm I’m at (got a big paycut due to covid and not getting the experience I want) but it has some perks (letting me remote work, potentially after covid too for X months/year). I’m trying to get pregnant. My parents and in laws are retired and would help us out with baby, but they live quite far. At current job I could remote work from another state and have their support. On the other hand I wouldn’t be entirely satisfied with job. What would you do?


My husband and I have been trying for a few months for a baby. Today I’m supposed to meet with 3 friends at an outdoor winery. My period has been so all over the place the last few months but was probably due some time in this week or next. I decided to take a test today so I could give myself comfort about drinking. I’ve never had a positive result before. I hope it’s true!

Any dads here experience having a premature baby? I’m wondering how best to support my wife. We’ve got a kid at home currently in daycare and our 2nd kid was born 10 weeks premature. Any advice helps.

A friend just kicked out of dental school because she refuses to get the COVID-19 vaccine. She claims her family has suffered “adverse affects” from the vaccine and is afraid to get it. What have you done to convince someone you love to get the vaccine? I hate watching her throw away her career because of something as trivial as getting a vaccine.


Would love to get some thoughts from this great community on which watch. The backstory is I have a great kid who is a friend that works with me. He’s getting married next year and I am planning to give him a watch as a wedding gift. Thinking of the following watches:

Should I settle for a lower comp while employer pays one time sponsorship & migration costs or bear the migration costs self and chase a good salary . Which is better ? Note : moving to UK with spouse and kid

Just now hearing about EgyptAir. They're saying it was likely an act of terrorism. I'm so sick and tired of terrorists. People can't fly in peace, can't go to airports in peace. It's so disgusting!


I'm the only woman on my team, and I'm always being asked to plan the social events for my team (lunches, dinners, happy hour, etc). Is this sexist?
