First time pregnant here. I have no clue what to expect after delivery. My husband and I decided to not ask help from our parents as they live in another country and don’t want them to catch covid while travelling. So, just want to understand what would be the recovery time after delivery? How long will it take approximately, before I can cook a meal again? Just want to get an idea before saying no to our parents.

32, 8.5wks pregnant with my first, and I found out last night that my Dad is leaving my Mom. I can’t say I’m shocked (they’ve never been happy), and I know my mom needs support. I’m struggling with how emotionally involved to get at this time and thinking about the health of the baby is stressing me out too.

Hey moms, I’m 33weeks pregnant, just entering 34 and way too excited to meet my little one. I’ve nested the crap out of the past few weeks and feel like I’ve gotten everything I need, put everything away, set up the nursery, (includes watching all YouTube nesting videos there ever were) etc etc. I’m out of things to do and work is slow-hence bored out of my mind. Any tips or recommendations on how I can kill the last month or so?

Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential?
