For the soon to be mums, have you run into the situation when doing all the blood test during pregnancy, some items now are no longer covered by Aetna? Not even the advanced test, even some medically necessary one prescribed by the doctor are out of pocket now?

Hi all! New to fishbowl and looking for some advice! I currently have 2 bachelors degrees and a Masters in Health Sciences. I have 7 years of inpatient healthcare experience and have started as a Data coordinator in solid tumor cancer research about 3 months ago. I get paid around $20/hr and am highly overqualified for basic data entry. However through out this process I’ve realized I love the science of what I do and want to possibly be a clinical scientist. Path/job suggestions?


Is there a healthcare payer/provider consulting bowl?

My therapist of 3+ years just told me that she’s going to stop taking insurance starting in January and her new rate will be $160 per session (right now I pay $45 for our weekly sessions). My insurance will not cover any of it.

I’m panicking. I struggle with depression and anxiety and my weekly sessions are what keeps me going (and meds!). I also love my therapist and she knows everything about me. I don’t want to start over but I also don’t know if I can afford $160 per session… what do I do?

Any digital Health ecosystem peeps In this bowl?

Technically, if you are rich enough, isn’t self-insurance the best option? Insurance companies have to make money by taking in more in premiums than paying out in claims, so on average the customer is losing money and has a negative (albeit stable) NPV on their insurance money. But if you had enough money to tolerate the risk of a unexpectedly high expense, wouldn’t it be better to not pay for the insurance?

A few months ago I asked the question about using travel smart routers to host a VPN to disguise your location. The purpose of this is to have a working vacation in a foreign country, without telling work about it. My work computer has restricted access so I cannot install a VPN service on the computer without help from IT. My work around is a smart router that can directly host a VPN. Now I am in Cabo with a VPN to the US. I’ve included some details in a comment below. AMA

I am in the process of stopping to breastfeed (currently still 1x morning and 1x after daycare) but my son really wants to be fed more often and cries when I stop him/ offer bottle instead. Any tips?

Best office chair for pregnancy? My ikea chair is not cutting it. I have a standing desk at home so bonus points if it works well with that. I have short legs, so it needs to be able to go lower to the floor than other chairs. Maybe one that has a great range so I could use it to lean on while standing and also sit ergonomically.


Help ! My 15 MO eats bare minimum in daycare and wakes up at night very 2 to 3 hours with hunger. I initially thought regression but it’s been 2 months and not improving. If I give him water he screams bloody murder until I give him milk in a bottle. On weekends he eats well and sleeps almost 8 hours straight with waking up once. I tried controlled CIO, sleep in bed together and every possible thing but nothing works. Daycare tells they try their best but he doesn’t eat.

Hi, everyone. How realistic it is to start a career at McKinsey as an Associate when I just had a baby and my husband also has a demanding job?
Positive: My mom lives with us and takes care of the baby a lot + nanny/cleanin, and I am hoping to not travel because my industry is in the city.
Negative: Burned out at my current consulting company, working 10-11hours/day. I haven't felt guilt yet, bc I am WFH and I get to see her from 6 to 9 am then 1-2 hrs before bedtime and then I keep working.

My baby daughter is almost 1 and I’m looking to stop breastfeeding and wean to cows milk soon. She has had very few bottles in the past 12 months (combo of Covid + she rejected bottles for several months) so we’ve primarily been nursing. I’m looking for weaning tips from parents in a similar situation. Seems like most methods involve combo of breast milk + cows milk in a bottle but that doesn’t really work for us since I haven’t pumped since like November!
