I just started a new job at Harvard and the day before I started the job I found out that I was four weeks pregnant. My husband and I are completely shocked but really happy.
I am having a hard time figuring out what leave policies apply to me. It is not clear in the benefits handouts. Also, I am too nervous right now to ask anyone in HR. My due date is December 10th and at that time I will have been employed there for eight months.
I want to come back to work next year after the baby is born. Does anyone have any advice for me in terms of when and how to tell my boss and HR. Who should I tell first, etc...?
