Does anyone know any supplemental insurance (pregnancy and labor, hospital expenses) I can get to combine with my already existing insurance from my employer? We are planning to get pregnant at the end of the year and even with the highest tier insurance we are still 5k out of pocket. :(
How long is the maternity leave for EY? I’ve heard different things from people from 4 months to 6 months (I know people add on vacation days too sometimes). Also..
Consulting moms. My son is 20 months old. I’m thinking of planning for a 2nd. What is a good age gap between siblings? I’m 33 and when I was pregnant with my son, I was nauseous the entire pregnancy! It was horrible, but now with WFH, I’m considering getting pregnant so I can deal with the symptoms from home. Thoughts on my approach? I’m nervous about COVID, but there’s no clear end in sight. I also don’t know how long it will take to get pregnant.
Curious for those that work in healthcare - does your company have parental leave and if so how much and for who (birthing/non-birthing, adoptive parents)?
I'm very seriously considering going back to school, specifically for nursing. Are there any adult learners here that can tell me about how to afford school, living expenses and child care? I'm starting to get discouraged at the thought this may not even be a possibility.

Love the dial, size and height. Feels just substantial enough on the wrist.
Doesn’t hurt that I picked this baby up for 1.200 under list.

Any good book recommendations for older babies approaching one year mark? I enjoyed baby 411 is toddler 411 equally helpful?
Anyone else hate Mother’s Day? I feel like I have to explain why I don’t have kids and I absolutely love my family, but they always include me in Mother’s Day celebrations... they give me cards and gifts celebrating me as an “auntie” or a “cat mom” feels like a consolation prize or something.
I’m looking to develop a transitional survey for students before they leave high school. What are some things you would want your child to know before they leave high school? What questions would you ask a graduating senior? What do you think students should focus on as they leave high school?
What is a useful, comprehensive but not too long of a book for parenting toddlers?
LO is 16 months old, very sweet and social, at the park every day with other kids with either me or her nanny. Not in day care. Yesterday we had a play date and she slapped another baby on the head. Not hard and did not scare her, but the act of “aggression” took me by surprise and I felt terrible about it. I’d like to be more proactive about toddler psychology, what’s to come and how to react/ teach. TY!
Hello! Just found this bowl, and glad to be here! I’m going to be a dad for the second time now, and balancing work life with helping out my partner and watching our little six year old. Our current challenge is - sadly :( we came down with Covid! Although we’re all vaxxed , my thoughts are to our unborn child. Is it wrong to worry? What should I be worried about? Should I take my partner to the doctor right away? Anyone else experience this ? Thank you for any guidance and advice.
We have an autistic non-verbal child in my school who is destructive. He tore my room apart last year (I do not have him as a student. He got into my room during class change.)
We can’t leave our doors open.
We can’t let the kids in the hall if he is in the hall.
He has his own teacher and 2 aides.
Anyone else have a situation like this?
How does your school handle this?
My husband and I decided recently that we want to start trying for a second kid. Our first is 14 months and while I do want another baby, I feel like I just got my body back (cont)
Have 1.5 months left of maternity leave I feel sad already luckily work is remote for now but I know I’ll be very busy with a ton of meetings at home, how did you moms handle this? I’m also exclusively breastfeeding my 2.5 month baby boy. Thanks!
How do you navigate the holidays, with or without kids? I tend to be pretty busy over the next 3-4 months and I always try to make as much time for family as I can, but it seems like it's never enough. My mother in law is pretty old fashioned and I can tell she thinks it's wrong that some nights I'm home late during the holiday season or when I work in downtimes during family holidays. My partner is incredibly supportive but I still feel some guilt over it.
Interviewing but still on maternity leave…
I have six weeks left in my maternity leave and may be very close to getting an offer from a company but the topic of a start date has never come up and all of my exchanges with HR have been around interview availability and compensation… im nervous this will be awkward or could hurt my chances of getting this job. Idk what the right way to handle this is… like should I cut my mat leave short or see if they can wait for it to end?
Hello fishes !
About to be offered a position at Deloitte London as SC. Exp : ~9.
Visa sponsorship is needed. I foresee a possible negotiation on compensation from Deloitte.
Not sure of the estimate yet but I understand it would be 55-60k as per other fishes . 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 ?

Between Chicago and DC, which city would be better for raising kids? For context, I am an Asian man who is married. Here are the simple pros and cons that I thought of:
Pros: lower cost of living; central location makes it convenient to fly out
Cons: not as many East Asians (!?) - perhaps there are other East Asian pockets here that I have not seen, but the suburbs here feel quite White
Pros: more Asian diversity; Nova has great public schools
Cons: higher cost of living

Anyone know how JUUL pays? Have a sense of how working there is? They’re hiring for a lot of senior roles...
My new boss: acts completely annoyed when I reach out for assistance or ask a question (deep sighs and completely speaks as if I should already know granular things like who the head of the Rome office is even tho I have never been told etc) and then she ALSO gets annoyed when I don’t ask her questions on things and go to others. It feels like a no-way-to-win situation. Help
