Just need to gripe. My partner of 10 years and I don’t plan on having kids. Why shouldn’t I get a paid sabbatical in lieu of parental leave? (Could apply to straight peeps too)
I’m switching to Deloitte but pregnant. Due in September... what maternity benefits will I get if any?
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.
Advice needed-I’m 30 weeks pregnant and constantly getting dumped on at work (in industry now). I’m high risk (gestational diabetes & hypertension) and have been clear with my all male management team that I’m high risk. Still, they are steady trying to pull me into new projects while I’m actively leading one of the most high profile projects in the org. From a career standpoint, I appreciate it, but I cannot physically keep up the way I used to and feel like I’m risking my and my baby’s health.
If anyone is looking to adopt an amazing pupper, look no further than my girl Annelle (Nelly) (6 yo). I’m trying hard to get her adopted! Super sweet, good with kids and dogs. Not cat tested.

That moment when the call admin mutes your line when your kid starts crying in the background...
My brother has 2 kids, aged 6 and 3. They never call or keep in touch but take full on advantage of my 77 year old mother who has health issues and debilitating back pain. They put her in stressful situations...she never says no because she’s too nice. Today called and said dropping off both kids FOR 6 days while they go on vacation to Florida for someone’s bday. I live in another state but am summoned to help take care of their kids with absolutely no notice. I say no & im the problem...
Any recommendations for a postpartum get-back-in-shape program I can do from home (app, website, etc)? I (luckily!) don’t have any crazy pelvic floor issues, but have had some real back pain so looking for a program with good core strengthening, as well as a balanced focus that can generally help me shed the post baby weight.
Question for people with nannies/home child care in NYC…how much are you paying them? Any benefits being offered to them? Sick days? Paid holidays? Vacation? First time Mom and the range I am getting from candidates seems so high not sure what is fair in this field. I don’t want to short anyone working to care for my baby but also don’t want to feel like I am working just to pay for the care.

Hi moms. I’m looking for tips for transitioning my baby from slow flow nipple to medium flow nipple. She is 12 weeks old, a few days short of 3 month. We thought she was ready for medium flow nipples a week ago and started using them. But there were a good amount of spill (any amount of breast milk wasted makes me 😞; there were more milk in her mouth than she can swallow, and milk end up overflowing out of her mouth). And she threw up most of the milk after one night feeding.
Did any recently pregnant or currently pregnant mamas eat sushi while pregnant? It feels overly cautious to avoid entirely
Baby attorney here. I am representing a mom in a custody case and I am worried about the outcome. I’m trying remind myself that the consequences/outcome she faces, stem from her actions/choices leading up to the hearing. Any tips on separating yourself from a case? ￼I don’t want to feel stressed or guilty, when I know I’m doing everything I can to fight for her.
Just read a post on Instagram about brides who are having to postpone their weddings due to covid and encouraging them to “stay strong.” I’m sorry, what? Stay strong? Weddings CAN be postponed. What is there to be strong for? I know we don’t need to compare one person’s struggle to another’s, but seriously? People missed the birth of their child, their graduation, etc - all things that can’t be postponed. Brides need to do less. Your wedding day will come. Thank you for listening to me vent 🥳

Recently ended a 3+ yr relationship (were both mid 20s and living together for just under 2 years) bc of him buying an engagement ring yet not proposing and waffling about our future. After 2 weeks I brought up that there’s a lot of good in us that maybe worth trying to work on (counseling etc). He wants space first and asked me to not wait for him as he sorts out his emotions and “tries to be happy again” (COVID depression and 100hr work weeks). Then he’ll decide if he wants to try again
Nightmare situation today at my first Zoom trial. On Friday, the court said trial would begin at 1:30 PM on Monday. We informed our clients and all our witnesses to be ready at that time. Never got a Zoom link, figured it would show up Monday morning. At 9:01 AM on Monday, we get an email saying, among other things, “Defense counsel has not appeared for trial.” Then, another email came immediately after that, with a Zoom link included. It’s just me and the paralegal in the office at this point.

Bit of an odd question. I am classic statistician who now leads a small Data Science team. Most of my time is running multiple projects and no time coding. I am now getting pulled into more and more large dollar proposal work typically centered around doing the same type of small scale DS projects for some DoD client but at scale ie 5-10 projects each at the same LOE of my typical projects but in the cloud. So I could use some advice....see second post
