Very interesting article about maternity leave at the Financial Post website today.
I completely understand the difficulty in deciding when to have children. Most of the lawyers in my age group are waiting rather than having kids early in their careers. For me personally though, I’m at a good law firm that “walks the talk.” Even so, I very highly doubt that I would ever take the full year off. Who can afford to?
I like the idea of having dad take time off. I hope my husband will. But before we get to that topic, I need to get to the point where he’s ok with us trying to have kids first!
