"They also sent me to training . . . and placed me in an ammunition room (which is a hazard because of lead exposure) and the training Lt. insisted on coming into the room to get ammo while I was pumping! "
Take the full 12 weeks of maternity leave. It’s necessary to establish breast feeding.
I didn’t breastfeed my oldest very long and she has digestive problems and allergies. So I was determined to breastfeed my other two to prevent the same issues with them.
I was out on maternity leave for 12 weeks. However it was unpaid and I had to also pay all of my benefits during that time which have equaled over $2,000.00. That money is now being taken out of my paychecks once I’ve returned so I don’t have much pay now that I’ve returned. It has really been a financial strain on us.
How to continue to breastfeed after returning to work. How to coordinate child care after returning to work. My husband’s job is further away and more demanding so he is unable to help much during the work day.
How hard it would be to return to work.
