Moms, I am 14 weeks pregnant. At KPMG, the new year starts in October and basically by spring of the following year, so April 2021, is when they put people up for promotion for the following year. My goal is to make it on that promo list in April 2021 - But thats when I am due. When should I inform my team that I am pregnant and how do I let them know that I am still willing to work hard for this promo despite my pregnancy? Thank you!

Hi! Congrats! I just had a baby in May and can totally relate to this. I told my PML and engagement leadership when I started to show. I continued to communicate to partners and PML that I wanted to be considered for promotion. Once I announced my pregnancy, I made it clear that I wanted to be considered. Was put up (didn’t get it). Just communicate as clearly and consistently as possible to your PML and leadership network. Get support and have a strong business case. Legally, pregnancy can’t affect promo candidacy.

KPMG 1, thank you!! And congratulations to you too! Since we are working from home, Its easy for my to hide my bump. I am thinking of sharing after my 20 week anatomy scan. I am close to my team and worried about offending them for not sharing sooner

At what age do you stop taking a bath with your child? My 3 year old & I were in the bath together and suddenly he reached out to my chest and said “mumma, your lungs are outside, mine are inside my body” I was so embarrassed! I told him that those were my breasts and that grown ups have slightly different body parts. I normally take a quick shower before him and sit in the tub with him, as that’s our bonding time. I was wearing underpants so thankfully he didn’t notice my non-existant penis
