About This Class

You’re thinking about having a baby or one is already on the way - congratulations! Now is the time to plan ahead to make your leave as smooth as possible. This course takes you through all the steps:

  • Telling people - who, what, where, when, and how
  • Understanding your options for paid and unpaid leave (if you're in the US)
  • Figuring out how your work will be handled while you're away

Getting ready for maternity leave doesn't have to be stressful. I'll show you how! This class is also great if you're a dad planning to take leave after a baby, or if you are taking family leave for any other reason. The timeline may be different, but the principles are the same.
