Plan for Your Maternity Leave


Now that you are into your second trimester, you might want to consider telling your co-workers that you are pregnant. Additionally, start researching your company's maternity leave policy, the laws surrounding maternity leave, and what you need to do to notify them when the baby arrives. Talk to your boss about current and future projects, and how your position will be handled while you are out.

While you are at it, start thinking about childcare options for when you return to work. Consider whether you want to hire a nanny, put your child in daycare, or have a family member help out. While it may seem like a long way off, many daycares have waiting lists, so it's best not to leave it to the last minute.
