Is a financial advisor the correct person to talk to about, and strategize with regarding creating a safety net for a parent who doesn’t have one for themselves? I don’t have a ton of resources to throw at this, but feel something needs to be in place. Thanks!

What kind of help do you need? Safety net isn’t very clear. Does your parent have assets and needs help using the wisely in retirement? Or do they need a strategy to start saving to create a safety net? Something else?

Thank you so much!

Hey mommas - My baby is 14 weeks old and I haven't gotten my period back yet. I'm worried I'm pregnant again. When did you get your period back? For context, I'm breastfeeding but not exclusively (I am pumping and nursing as much as I can though). I've been on the pill since 6 weeks and my husband used condoms for the first few weeks once we started again. Surprisingly, I can't find anything online that's helpful. Any sense of a timeframe would be tremendously anxiety-reducing!

Hi ladies. A birth control question. I take oral BC on time every day but I am struggling to feel comfortable with sex without a condom. I know BC is something like 99% effective but I am not ready for the repercussions of failure - whether raising a child or choosing not to, both are decisions I do not want to make. My partner is frustrated by this but defers to me and is willing to do whatever I'm comfortable with. I want to become comfortable without condoms. Any ideas?

My upstairs neighbor hit my car and made a big stink about paying for the damages. Turns out her kid (16) hit my car so she didn’t want to go thru insurance because her kid doesn’t have a license.
