I’m going through the foster care training program to start fostering a child, but am wondering if there are any women out there who can talk to me about working in consulting & raising foster kids?

I have not fostered but have family who do and another who is a caseworker. I’d talk to whoever is giving you training about any travel or long working hours. I think it greatly depends if you have a partner who can be home or if you can be home to dedicate sufficient time to bonding, making appointments, providing a stable home, being able to drop other things on short notice etc.

First time mom-to-be here, just found out I’m pregnant. Feels like there are a thousand things to do/think about and I know we have time, but not sure how to prioritize. What did you do first, and/or what do you wish you’d done in your early stages of pregnancy to prepare? Feeling pretty good at the moment (fingers crossed that keeps up!) so have the energy to get things done.

I have a very large fear of actual pregnancy- things going wrong, feeling sick (morning sickness, exhaustion, etc and affecting my work performance), my body never being the same (vain but true), and doing something wrong and affecting baby. How do I calm my nerves?

A couple years ago, I was asked to cover a female coworkers job duties while she was out on maternity leave for 6 months. I covered 90% of her work with our client and was drowning. They specifically gave it to me as the only other woman on the team and she was my same level. She came back from mat leave and got promoted, we were same level, same YOE. Everyone else in our group was promoted who was eligible. How would you have dealt with this? I was devastated. Just now getting over it.
