A month ago, I started a FT NP job in an area I love. The onboarding for my new job was long (a little over 6 months) and during the onboarding process, I became pregnant. I am very excited for this baby (my first) as we tried for over five years, however the timing is challenging. I told my boss and fellow providers - most were happy but a few were noticeably disappointed. I will be due 8 months after working and plan to work up until delivery, take 6-8 week maternity leave (no FMLA) and return to work. My hope is to negotiate a 4-day work week (32-hours) upon return, with the expectation that I can make phone calls, finish charting, etc., on the 5th day. Does this seem reasonable? Does anyone have experience with this situation?
