Turned 30 today. Gotta say I feel fine. Slightly fatter than I’d like to be but I am ok financially, married, and have a baby on the way. Getting 5 months of paid paternity leave (Thanks Accenture!) so hopefully will be able to ride out the tail-end of ‘rona.

Accenture UK. Depends on how many paid weeks your wife takes. Mine is a teacher so she can ‘come back to work’ on the first day of summer holiday, leaving loads of weeks for me.

I feel terrible. My mum and my husband both told me I am fat and need to lose weight ASAP. They were not trying to insult me, they both really think they have my best in interest. I am a mother of 11 months old twins, am still breastfeeding and currently have 11kg more than before pregnancy. I was always skinny and before pregnancy wore size 8. I feel so bad for hearing that, and feel like a failure on all levels.

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!
