I think all depends on pregnancy, baby’s health and how much you work. My first was a preemie. I was on bedrest at 28 weeks, had her at 34 weeks and stayed home until she was 4 months old. My second, I was only working part time (10-15 hours a week). I went back after a month because some of it could be done at home. Now, I’ve been promoted a few times and going to be full time after the new year.

I was lucky to have a year paid in the UK with both my babies. I can’t imagine having to go back to work right away. My little one had a lot of issues and I would find that really difficult.

I am in NJ and I had 6 weeks of disability followed by 6 weeks of FDI. I went back at 12 weeks. It is a sick joke! I think women should have at least a year paid! My husband only had 3.5 weeks off - in which he had to use his personal time. Men should have at least 6 months, paid!

I have a year...don't know how mama's who go back early do it. My brain felt foggy until last month (month 10)
