As I hear from working women about their trials and tribulations of pregnancy and maternity leave, one of the hot topics is always “when/how to tell your boss you’re pregnant”. There is so much fear and concern about how the manager will respond.
I have a theory that most of the fear about telling the boss comes from myths and legends, but I could be wrong (I hope I am). I actually think that in most cases the manager is willing to work with you as best they know how. That’s the deal, most don’t know how so the whole thing gets awkward and clunky.
So, here’s where you come in… I need your stories. What REALLY happened when you told your boss you were pregnant? Comment here with your story and please share this with the other working women you know who would have a story to share.
Thanks! Let’s get those comments rolling in.
