Love the field I'm in (counseling), but don't plan on working 9-5 when I'm expecting. 

Advice to the ladies: if you plan on staying home when expecting or after children, make sure you are your SO are on the same page beforehand. 

I know of women who wanted to stay home, but found out, after the fact, that their husbands wanted them to work.

I know a lot of moms around my age (not married), they worked up until the couldn't anymore and feel like they're proving some point... that's fine for them. 


Many women work up o the last minute in order not to eat into their maternity leave. They want to spend as much time with LO before having to return to work. When you cut a month out of that before delivery, thats one month less with baby. If youre ill, then thats understandable.
If a woman can work, and has the go ahead from obgyn, then i dont see the problem

I think being a stay at home mom is wonderful, but some do women choose to work or have to work and I don't see why we can't just look at the pros and cons of both situations

you have to pick what works best for you and your family and your goals

That's not counting women who have pregnancy related complications, of course.

America needs A LOT of improvement on it's maternity leave. 

Many business/companies also view starting a family as detrimental to employees' productivity. 

I know of women who lost their jobs because their bosses (always men) discovered they were expecting and thought it would interfere with their work. 

Just another reason why we need more women in leadership positions, especially within companies.

Mommy friendly companies are vital to career women being successful.

how can maternity leave issues be changed? not just in 1 company but overall/...i never gave this issue a thought but i might want to have kids some time in the near future and this is worrying me. 3-4 months just isn't enough time and you shouldn't have to use your vacation as maternity leave, that's just not fair.
