Has anyone heard of the Natalist? I found their Parent Plans book but the only reviews are directly on their site. Alternatively, are there any recommendations for books my husband and I can read to begin preparing to have a child? I can’t just get pregnant and figure it out, I need to try to go in informed (understanding that there’s no way to truly prepare). Expecting Better and Crib Sheets have very polar reviews and don’t quite fit the bill for me. TIA!
PwC moms, looking up the paid parental leave policy. It seems like even though I will be eligible for 26 weeks of leave, only 8 of these will be paid. Is that right, looking for guidance here.
Controversial question - would you support a program where the gov pays say 20k if you decide to get sterilized with no kids? And maybe 15k if you have 1 and so on? You should have to be 21 years old to make the decision. Feel like it would be a way to help pull some out of poverty and can make a better life for themselves and if they already had a kid for their kid as well and would help prevent generational poverty.
Hi, I’m currently on parental leave and interested in doing some minor side huddling like case coaching or college essay editing etc. Something consultants can do well and easily. Are there known websites/ forums to offer these services and get connected to clients?

My husband is from Brazil and we are expecting our first child in April. My mother in law is great, but she wants to come stay with us before the baby is born and right after. I am torn between appreciating the help and wondering if I will want this time to be alone to bond with my baby and husband. Does anyone have experience with having their MIL coming during this period?
I go on maternity leave soon, and my firm offers 16 weeks paid leave, which I plan to fully take advantage of. The only female shareholder in our office keeps pushing me to only take 6 weeks though, because that's what she did. I feel really put off by her comments, but its also making me feel guilty about taking the full time. This is mostly a vent, but if anyone wants to give me some words of wisdom or thoughts, I will take them!

Back in the day, I did my own PR, sales & marketing for whatever business idea I was running with at the time.

Can I book a Marriott room from my account for a family member? I won’t be staying with them
I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!

When your bosses always come in late but you get to work on time. So your coworker that comes in late and stays late with them gets the glory and the promotion. 🤔
Hello fish! Any idea about Affirm Inc. ? I got reached out for an analytics manager role. How’s the WLB, career progression?
