I just called my hr and found out that my maternity leave is UNPAID.I am currently 6 months pregnant with baby #2 and the company i currently work for does not offer paid maternity leave even though i have been there over 2 years.I am a newly single mom. I am unsure how im going to pay bills.Im not worried about childcare for ds bc he'll be home with me. I can not afford to go 8-15 weeks being unpaid. I know it is common but I am unfamiliar with the process and would really like to know if anyone has any advice. Those of you went to work after birth, what did you do for childcare. Public assistance is not an option. This is so much stress on me and any advice would be appreciated.
Anyone else in a similar situation? What did you do when the time came?
