When you go to a maternity shoot, it is important to wear clothes that fit the season and make you feel your best. Wear clothing with colours or patterns that flatter your skin tone and hair colour.

Avoid bold prints because they may compete for attention with a baby bump in photos.

Pregnant women should also be taking iron supplements while pregnant because of the high demands for this nutrient during pregnancy, especially in the second and third trimesters.

Who determines FMLA eligibility?
Employers must follow the federal Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) to determine if an employee has a serious medical condition. The FMLA allows employees who have worked at least 1250 hours in a rolling year before taking leave from work up to 24 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave that they can use for being ill or caring for an ill family member.
If you are pregnant and need time off from work it will be counted as one continuous period under the FMLA unless your employer separates it into multiple periods due to recertification requirements. For pregnancy-related disabilities through labour and delivery, prenatal care, or any complications related to the pregnancy or birth are not included time under FMLA.
What are some problems that can occur during breastfeeding?
Some possible problems with breastfeeding include nipple pain, low milk supply, plugged ducts or mastitis (inflammation of the breast). It is important to seek help from a lactation consultant if you experience any of these issues as they could lead to further complications.
Can I get paid while taking FMLA?
FMLA does allow an employee to use accrued paid leave (vacation/sick/holiday) during the FMLA period at their discretion but that time off won’t extend the 12-week entitlement of unpaid leave provided by FMLA. Pregnancy disability is considered a serious health condition so any absence related to pregnancy would qualify even though no one mentioned “maternity” in the list above.
While on pregnancy disability there are two options: The first option is using already earned sick and vacation hours up until 26 weeks which can last up to 12 weeks. The second option is unpaid leave starting after 26 weeks until the child’s birth which can last up to 12 weeks as well.
While on FMLA, one has the right to return to the same job or an equivalent position with a minimum of 16 hours per week and compensation comparable to what you made before leaving for your leave time.
If there are major changes in terms/conditions upon returning from leave- the employer must inform employees within two business days before they come back so that questions could be answered beforehand. Additionally, an employee cannot waive his/her rights under FMLA if any conditions would change once coming back from maternity disability (ex: pay raise).
What happens when you don’t take your full 12 weeks of maternity leave?
Taking longer than the standard 12-week maternity leave can put someone in a difficult situation if they run out of paid time off before their baby arrives or end up taking less than six weeks postpartum because they’ve exhausted their allowance.
