It's working for Celinda A
"I have an employee that just had his first child and I've gone above and beyond to ensure he feels supported and has the flexibility to parent."
Create a sense of balance that is right for you. Keeping up with the Joneses is the norm these days but not necessary.
I had twins. One wouldn’t always latch but I always tried. I breastfed, pumped and bottle fed. It was helpful when their Dad did the night feedings.
My employer gave me 6 weeks unpaid. It was terrible. Work was relatively unsupportive.
I was really worried about leaving them with a stranger. I had excessive mom guilt and became overly type A to ensure they had the best care possible.
