Wow. My entire job would fall apart at the seams if I were gone for four months in a row. You’re very lucky! I am going to be back at least one or two days a week within the first month. 🙁

Posts like this always make me glad I am Canadian. Between EI Maternity Leave, Parental Leave and my collective agreement, we are entitled to one full year of paid leave.

@bellarain:  I think it sounds like a great proposal!  Would your company not hire a temporary leave replacement for you while you are out?

One of my hopes for the future of the U.S. is that we’ll (as a society) start valuing our society’s future, ie. our children, enough to make it feasible for mothers to spend those first 6 months-a year with their babies during that important developmental time.  I hope your company works with you on this—you deserve it!

Good luck!

@julies1949:  Saaaaame here. This is one stress I’m so glad I don’t have to be faced with.


@bellarain:  Your proposal sounds reasonable, I hope they approve it!

The only thing I can say is: make sure you aren’t using ALL your vacation and personal days for after you get back in this scenario. There will be doctor’s appointments, childcare emergencies, you name it….don’t take it all as maternity leave (if that’s what you’re doing – could just be rollover/accrued stuff allready!)
