Awesome question! Pandemic or no pandemic, new moms should always look out doe they safety of their newborn! Don’t be afraid to have visitors watch their hands, sanitize or ask if they are immunized. You’re mom and if your baby gets sick, you have to take care of them💕

How old is your baby?

Last year was my first year with my baby, and I chose to stay home because the logistics were just too overwhelming. I’m happy I stayed home and set those boundaries for my mental health (PPD, covid stress, just plain old tired, etc). Do what’s best for you momma, even if it’s saying no to invites this year.

Went to a funeral recently and my cousin asked that no one hold her small baby. I totally respected that, although others in the family pushed it, which I thought was disrespectful. My first born was a November baby and I was a freak about who could hold him and this was 10 years ago. You can always ask the doctor too, they will have advice about this. I think you are the parents and you can make the rules about what you feel comfortable with.

Why are town Hall meetings so impersonal? They are all about awards / the number of people hired. I know FCB health is large, but we never hear from people who aren’t Executives. Last town hall, when discussing inclusion efforts, there were no people of color represented and one of the 4 pillars of diversity was centered around our “reputation as an organization” (that really rubbed me the wrong way). At my last agency those conversations were always led by people of color from every level.

Hey friends, I was laid off (due to COVID) from Accenture a month ago as an analyst. I had a pretty good network of SM, MD and managers that I talked to frequently before. However once I was laid off, I got depressed and haven’t reached out to any of them. I feel horrible but I’m trying to push myself out of my depression and make some positive changes. My fear is that at this point, I’m just a number and that they don’t care. It’s causing me anxiety and I’m telling myself it’s too late now.
