It's Working Project

"My current job changed my office from a shared space to a private office space with a door that locks when I returned to work."

What is one piece of advice you wish you could offer your former expectant self?

It isn’t easy at first but you do figure out a rhythm!

FOR MOMS: If you breastfed, was there a place for you to pump that met your needs and was conducive to your success? If you breastfed, how did you decide to continue? FOR DADS: What, if any, adjustments did you (or your workplace) make to your schedule after having a baby? Was it specific to your manager or larger, whole work culture?

My first experience was difficult ,but thankfully with my second, I have a job that allows me the needed 3 sessions to continuously pump while at work.

How much leave did you take, and how comfortable were you taking it?

With my second I took 12 weeks which I felt was a great amount of time.

How easy was it to put a childcare arrangement together and did it work for your family?

Childcare came easily for us as we knew right away the in home center we wanted to try for.
