I am actually deciding on staying home after the baby is born.
I learned that due to the fact that I was newly pregnant just prior to getting hired that I get unpaid 6 weeks of maternity leave at my job now. They also said I won't qualify for short term disability even though I technically will have met and surpassed the hours required to get it!!! I am so infuriated about it. But I also have not been treated well. I have been here since September 2014 and have already had 5 lunches missed because of no coverage, I work in a doctors office and they don't close for lunch hour...
I guess I am trying to see what some of you may have done or have found to help make up costs after going on maternity leave or staying home all together??
Anything like working from home or things of that nature?? Any help is much appreciated!!
