First time mom here - does time taken for maternity leave (non extended) count toward total years of experience? How does it (or does it?) show up on background checks?

First off: congrats! Second, if you are on paid maternity you are technically still employed. So that counts towards your tenure, which I’m pretty sure is what will be reported in background checks.

Hello! Any advice for a soon to be first time mom? I read somewhere that we need to take four months of maternity leave before the baby is due. Is that true? Going to reach out to PML soon and then HR. Thanks!

I know this topic has come up before but am asking a slightly different question. We have always talked about 3 kids. I discovered I was pregnant with kid 2 the week my city went into lockdown last spring. Entire pregnancy and first 9 months of 2’s life has been Covid. It has been such a vulnerable scary time and I don’t want to be that vulnerable again. I am vaxxed and it’s more about not wanting to be reliant on the medical system vs Covid specifically. Will I regret not going for 3?
