About to have a baby in next April! Just wonder how much it costs to give birth to a baby with insurance coverage? And when is a good time to let the team know you are pregnant?
Moms who breastfed/pumped, why did you do it and how did you maintain sanity? Esp after reading Cribsheet where she says there may not be any lt benefits, 3 weeks in and I’m ready to give up
Mom, I'm getting someone from another country to live with me and help out taking care of my child for a few months. What kind of insurance should I get for that person?
Looking for help related to maternity policy which states we’re eligible for 16 weeks postpartum and it should be taken within first 6 months from delivery. Does it have to be consecutive 16 weeks?
What would you say is the best level (if there is one) to have a first baby? I’m currently a Manager trying to determine if I want to get to SM before having a baby. While SM would bring in more money, I’m also worried about juggling it all as a new SM and new baby.
I visited a friends that has a 1 year old baby. She asked me if I wanted to get a dog, and then asked me if I wanted to get a plant 😂. She said it was a good way to start carrying for something else and get experience for the future. I think this is hillarious I don’t see how a dog or a plant will fulfill my life. 😂
Deloitte Moms - I heard we should handover our laptop before we go on maternity leave. Does the same apply to office phone too? What else should I plan ahead for?
I am not from the US and taxes overwhelm me; the first few years I did them with TurboTax and it was fine but then I entered a domestic partnership and had a baby. I also bought a house (that I don’t live in), so I went to H&R Block to give it a try assuming they could advise me on optimizing my return, it seemed that they are completely transactional as the person is just typing numbers in a form. Any recommendations on how to navigate personal taxes with an actual advisor?
Helping raise awareness: If a colleague is going out on maternity leave, it’s lovely to acknowledge. Pro tip- saying “I everything goes well” is more appropriate than wishing them “A good break.”

As a male mid-level/senior associate, can you take the full parental leave (10-14 weeks) and come out without impact on partnership prospects? What are questions I should be asking to get at this issue before accepting a lateral offer? Quiz recent junior partners with kids? Seems a bit aggressive but may be necessary.
Hi Moms- Curious to get a sense of what your different parental leave policies look like and how you have liked them. My company gave 12 weeks paid and I felt it was woefully short for my first. Before having my second, I'm interested in pushing my company to increase the time and am curious to hear what other companies offer. Beyond just the time, was your company flexible? Is it the same for all parents? Did it feel like enough? Thank you!

New to options trading, been following this bowl a while and trying to get educated with courses on options alpha and TD Ameritrade. How many of yall are able to make consistent extra income from options trading?

Just wondering if it’s more of a gamble then anything except for the exceptional few...

I need recommendations for nice maternity work pants. My office is WFH but I occasionally need to go in. I’m 16 weeks (first pregnancy) and today realized in a panic when I attempted to get dressed that my work pants are either too tight in the waist to wear or getting there. I’m tall (5’10”) and usually wear Theory, Rag and Bone or J. Crew work pants. Any suggestions for nice black maternity pants that I could pair with a blouse or blazer? Thx!!

What is the main difference between what a Manager and a Senior Manager? My client is very money conscious and thinks SM rates are silly for what they “get.” Obviously you manage sales, but that’s internal... clients don’t get that benefit.
