Look up postpartum doulas in your area. Prices are all over the map. Depends a lot on their level of expertise and experience.

Thanks! Didn’t know this term. This is for an agency in Chicago: Postpartum Rates range from $28-47 per hour, depending upon daytime or overnight hours and the experience level of the doula you work with.

I found one using Yelp. The price in LA was $45/hr overnight, which I know is super expensive but I was desperate.

Hey all! Wondering if people have suggestions on LMSs (learning management systems) they love.

I work at a small (25 EE) fintech startup and all the departments are looking for software that would help streamline on boarding, have options for continued learning, and career succession planning. I’ve only worked with larger LMSs previously.

I know this is a subjective topic in certain ways, but I would love to hear your thoughts and why are you enjoy the system you work with.

Words of Wisdom: best career advice/encouragement you’ve ever received?


My teenage son is a freshman in high school. He's constantly stressed and anxious even though he's performing extremely well in classes. He's constantly saying he hates everything and is always tired. I've been trying to get him to sleep by 1130 latest and had him download a mindfulness app but he doesn't seem to stick to anything and continues with the negativity. Any tips on how to push through? I'm considering having him set up time with his school counselor but I'm not sure what else to do


For the moms that work full time, I have nothing but respect for you!! I am at a point in my career where my husband and I are expecting our first and I want to start taking a back seat to my career and focus on family. For those of you that have a full time and part time parent working, what factors did you consider and how much income was reasonable to you?

How much do you make working from home for a company such as Humana? What should be a good salary?


I’m curious to hear from people at other firms what is offered in terms of part time work or alternative work options for people that don’t really care about making partner and might want to work part time. I just had my second child and want to ask to come back from maternity leave on a part time basis but our firm doesn’t seem to have anything in place right now. If your firm offers this, what’s the billable requirement, how much of a pay cut is it, and do you still get benefits? Thanks!

For moms having their second, third etc child during this pandemic, how did you decide who was going to watch/take care of your older children when you were giving birth? I’m struggling through this concept of having someone watch my daughter. I’m not pregnant currently, but this is keeping me from wanting to try for another. I don’t know if any family members will quarantine if need be or if anyone will actually do what we want them too. My husband told me it will be fine but we can’t expect


Hi Moms, just had baby #2 and we want to upgrade our family car from Toyota Rav4 to a 3-row luxury SUV that's nice looking inside and outside, reliable and has decent cargo space too. My husband doesn't like the exterior of Grand Wagoner. We are considering the Grand Cherokee, Cadillac Escalade or Lincoln Navigator. But I have read terrible reviews about Escalade. Folks seem to like GMC Yukon Denali but I'm worried it'll be too big for me to drive. Appreciate recommendations / thoughts. Thanks!


Everything has sort of snow balled and I’m at a loss. I can’t do it all. Do I take a leave of absence? Reduced work schedule? I can’t manage 2 kids, full time work that never ends, a completely incompetent husband, and a brand new house. What do I do lol. Someone please help bc I’m losing it.

Currently stuck with my 15 month old already on thin ice at work bc my MIL is a crazy bitch and just quit helping to watch her (we could have used daycare but were assured she’d be less crazy).

We just experienced our first meltdown with 2 kids under 2. We scheduled back to back dr appts for me and our toddler so my husband had to drive and bring everyone. However my appt was running late so my husband had to also bring the baby to the toddler appt. Baby was fussy and cried. Toddler decided to be clingy, did not want to walk and wanted to be carried. My poor husband had to wheel a crying baby and while trying to balance a toddler throwing a tantrum to the doctor’s office where they...


A potential nanny has requested that we do a trial day prior to being hired so both sides can see if it’s a good fit. It would be the entire day where I watch her interact with my kid. Do I pay her for the trial day?


Not work related but do any other moms that have taking cara babies 5-24 months course that can share their access? I was gifted the toddler course however my girl is 21 months (I can share my access with you for the toddler course) I would appreciate the help! I cant afford it but my cousin who knows I’m struggling with sleep gifted me the toddler course (not knowing its for when shes a little bit more older) Tia❤️


How do you guys keep your house clean with toddlers and have time to work full time, work out, cook, play with toddlers, take them to activities, etc? I've never been a super tidy person but I really do enjoy a clean home and try but I have the hardest time keeping up. I did at one time have a housekeeper which helped but we can't afford it at the moment. Just doesn't feel like there's enough hours in the day to get it all done.


What do you tend to do with your Kid(s) for spring break? I want to start traveling abroad with my 8 yr old daughter but wondering if she’s too young or if it’s safe enough for just us 2 to travel abroad? I think the exposure would be a good learning experience yet fun!
