Your not crazy!

I think you will just have to feel things out- pehaps a few weeks into things, you will feel comfortable with brininging the baby or making arrangments. Is she going to fire you or is it just her reaction that is bothering you?

Is you mom like the baby Martyr who has gone through everything you have gone through ( aches, sytmptoms, problems etc) plus walked up hil 6 miles in the snow with a smile on her face and went to work all while having a baby? You know what I’m saying?

What do you mean by in house? At her house or different client;s houses? If it is at her house I can understand why she would think that. If you would have to drag the baby around to several different places then no it would not be feasible.

Yikes.  I guess that’s a peril of working with family, huh?  I bet if she had the same conversation w/ an employee who wasn’t also her daughter, she wouldn’t have handled it quite so badly, but I could be wrong.  I think it’s totally crazy that she doesn’t understand your desire for actual maternity leave.  That being said, you’re doing the right thing.  Step away from the situation for a little while and cool off before bringing it up again.  Also, it might be good for you to write up a plan of how your clients’ needs might be met while you’re out on maternity leave.  That way your mom/boss can see that you’ve thought things through and that there is a plan in place.  Good luck!!

@runsyellowlites: bahahahahhaha hhahhahahahahah that. is. hilarious. I honestly was shocked when I read that because I was putting myself in the place of the client and you bringing a baby younger than 6 weeks to my home and proceeding to breastfeed him/her during our session…..I would find it hilarious. Seriously hilarious.

I’m sure your mom was just not thinnking straight….I mean:

 1. you won’t have the energy

2. you can’t just take a newborn into homes where there are any types of germs/pets

3. no client wants you whipping out a breast while your doing their accounting Tongue Out

No you did not overreact

Oh my, I can just imagine that your client would LOVE to have you on the clock while you’re breastfeeding!!  I mean, doesn’t every working lady get to take their newborns with them when they go to work?!  Come on, Mom, get with the program.  You’re definitely going to need some maternity leave… and I’d bet you’re going to even want more than the 6 weeks you asked for.  I’m guessing she’s coming from a selfish standpoint, “how is this affecting me?  look what you’re doing to my business!!”  It’s a very inconsiderate attitude, and I’d imagine if you weren’t mother/daughter, she wouldn’t treat an employee this way.

Why can’t your mom hire a temp for six freaking weeks?

By The Way, you’ll need recovery time too!  What if you have a c-section?  You won’t be able to do any lifting (like carrying a baby in a car seat to work!) for some time.
