I am due with my first baby in June. The facility that I work at offers an option to work 16 hour shifts on Saturday and Sunday and have the rest of the week off. They usually offer premiums for these positions, and you are considered a full-time employee.
To those of you who are moms and work these shifts, how do you like it? Is 16 hours too long of a stretch to be away from your little one? What kind of premium do you get at your facility?
I would appreciate any input...I know my facility offers these positions, but I don't think they have any available at the moment. I know other facilities in my area that have openings though.
