Navigating Maternity Leave with Dani LeVeck

Update: 2023-09-08


This week's episode is a special one as we welcome back the one and only Dani LeVeck to the WoMed, and nostalgia is definitely in the air! Dani is so happy to share that she's expecting her second baby, and today, the gals are talking all things maternity leave. Dani shares her personal experience of navigating maternity leave with her first baby in comparison to her current pregnancy and the lack of maternity benefits available to part-time staff at her hospital. She shares her struggle of trying to go back to full time and the stress of not knowing when benefits will kick in once she goes on maternity leave. They also discuss how maternity leave is vastly different around the world, the countries with the highest paid mat leave, and the many US companies that offer extensive maternity programs to new and expecting mothers.
