How do people manage the consultant lifestyle with young children? I just joined consulting and have a 9 month old and want to have another. I’m not sure how I will manage traveling and long hours. (Background: I am in my early 30’s and joined consulting late as I spent first 5 years post-undergrad working in a low paying career then got my MBA. I feel like moving up the consulting ladder is the only way to make up for lost time and several years of low pay. Wife can work part-time, 2 days/week)

Any advice on budgeting for your first child? My wife is expecting and I’m wondering how much per month our expenses are going to go up. No childcare expenses, fortunately. We spend about $5k per month now in the DC area, so is $5500 a reasonable target or should I plan on more like $6000?
What do your maternity and paternity leave policies look like? Please give company names!
HIMS baby ☑️☑️☑️
Call me crazy, but if people don’t want to get pregnant… maybe don’t have sex or just use a condom? Science states life starts at conception… so aren’t pro-lifers following the science? People don’t just magically get pregnant. Actions have consequences. If I chose to drive drunk, commit a crime, etc - that’s on ME. Why is there no accountability?
First American Financial Corporation Does anyone know the parental leave policy at First America?
Ladies, need some advice - how much do you spend on baby shower gifts and birthday gifts for your girlfriends?
Expecting my first baby in October. My boyfriend of 6 years and I have been having a lot of issues and he’s growing verbally abusive. I’m thinking it’s best if one of us moves out to create space for a healthy remainder of my pregnancy. Has anyone broken up mid pregnancy? Terrified to make the wrong decision but we aren’t happy anymore.
I’ve done sugar waxing for a Brazilian 3 times before. The most recent one was a bit painful if my memory serves me correct. I’m pregnant now though. Would the pain be about the same or more? Any tips on what to do to reduce the pain?
My SIL is having her first baby today! What is something nice I can send to her in the next few weeks? She lives across the country and is allergic to flowers.
Has anyone tied how their career and how they interact with bosses/other coworkers is tied to their childhood/being narcisisticly abused? I am a victim of narcisisitic abuse as a child, have seeked therapy for it, and a lot of therapists do not understand naarcisistc abuse and actually tell me to reach out to my abusers. I just feel like on a subconsious level I am behind others when it comes to emotional disregulation as well as just having a higher level of anxiety. Can anyone relate?

My mother in law is planning to stay with us for 3mo after my wife gives birth (because we live internationally). Any tips / ground rules to help everyone stay sane? We have a 3bdr house townhome, but living space is pretty close-quarters.
Ladies, Need your opinion. I am 45, mom of two kids and in consulting with the same title for 7 years. I proved my breadth of knowledge but never found a mentor to promote me. Each time manager changes. Past 5 years were difficult conceiving my second baby via ivf. Now I need to rebuild myself for lost esteem, time. How do I get started? I want to go higher but some illness n stress also left me with not so fluent speech. What trainings can I undergo to improve my communication skills?
Mother superannuated today and was able to watch her farewell speech. Feeling very emotional (i.e. tearing up at midday) as I recall our humble beginnings and how much my middle class family has sacrificed and achieved. My parents sent their only daughter for higher education abroad and it is tough to see them grow old. Getting exposed to so many new facets of life as a 25F…. just one of those days. Kind words only please 🙏

Does anyone know if insurance typically covers a breast pump each pregnancy? I got one with my first and thinking I want to try a different one this time
I’ve been at two different small firms where the owner/managing attorney screams and yells, bullies and verbally abuses assistants and paralegals. Is this a small law thing or a law thing? Bad luck?
