Maternity Leave? I’m trying to plan some time out to have my first child and work predominately with older men so this is unchartered territory. Any tips?

Your clients need you. Unless you have great support staff who can support you while you’re away, you’re a business owner and your clients do business with you because of you. Consider having your baby and bringing him/her to work with you until they’re mobile. Then, do your baby a favor and find them great care where he/she can interact with little people their age. I’ve very discreetly nursed while meeting with clients days after giving birth. Women seek equality while providing great balance for our households. Run your practice while being a great mother. It’s what women do... IMHO

Honestly, they probably won't care much one way or another. The only thing that might matter is if you work in an office with no business partner/default person to cover you when you're out. If that's the case, I would talk with one person about handling your affairs and give them a nice gift card, present, etc. when you get back to say thank you. My personal two cents: as a mom of two who has taken ML as a broker both times, take the time you want. Don't let anyone guilt you/convince you what is or is not right for your family.

You are entitled to FMLA maternity leave... yes, don’t let them guilt you. You will NEVER get that time back. I lost my son’s years from 18 mo to 6 yo building my business. I got lucky and it worked out, I have a lot of flexibility now, but I regret missing so much of those years to daycare and a nanny.

Thank you for the perspective and encouragement! I’m an IC so rather than even unpaid maternity leave I’ll have to pay Office and payroll expenses while I’m out. Also a little concerned about getting someone to cover for me- great to know that a sweet thank you gift may be all that’s expected

I have an 18 month old now but I took 8 weeks off. During that time I did come in to meet with clients periodically, less than once a week, and I did participate in all the conference calls that I normally would have from home. Each person is different and being disconnected from work didn’t make me happy. I feel like my leave was perfect for me and my little girl.

Be prepared to take plenty of time for the physical recovery. The exhaustion really starts f-ing with you at weeks 4-6, so I would plan to take 12 weeks if possible. Also, daycare is awesome, at least it was for this Mom of two who lovingly dropped her babes off at 9 weeks (they still love me, lol). And congrats!
