In this post, we will discuss How to Take Maternity Photos at Home.
I was recently at a baby shower and one of the mothers-to-be asked how to take maternity photos at home. I started thinking about how much I love taking pictures of my children, so this question got me excited!
There are lots of different ways you can capture your pregnancy with a baby in tow. One idea is to take photos around your house or outside on walks together. Another option is to document how you’re feeling by having someone else photograph you while you’re doing things like cooking, reading, or just hanging out. You may even want to use props if it’s appropriate for the time of year (think leaves in autumn!)
The important thing is that no matter what kind of photoshoot you do, it’s about how you feel. If it’s your first baby, these photos will be some of the few that document how you’re feeling during this period because once a baby comes along, life changes drastically!
I love seeing how people decorate their nursery or what they choose to put on their registry- those things are super personal. And if that kind of thing is important to you then, by all means, take lots and lots of pictures.
One last point I would like to touch on – do not compare yourself with others’ maternity photos online or in magazines! Every woman looks different when she’s pregnant so don’t worry about how well anyone else does at capturing pregnancy except for how YOU want to capture YOUR pregnancy.
What benefits can I get when my maternity pay stops?
If you are not eligible for maternity benefits, sick leave or vacation pay when your maternity pay stops, then this is considered income. You may be able to claim the Canada employment amount if you worked in Ontario during that period.
Can my employer ask when I will return from maternity leave?
No. The law in Canada prohibits your employer from asking you when you plan to return from maternity leave, whether there is a set date or not. Your employer cannot ask for this information because they must respect the right of employees to take care of their health and safety without pressure from employers that may negatively affect them.
If an employee’s rights are violated by coercive questions about their pregnancy or parental status, it could lead to legal action being taken against them under Section 74(a) of the Pregnant Workers’ Benefits Program Act (PWBPA). If an organization violates these laws then they can be fined up to $1000 per day.
It also goes on record as a violation which means other organizations will learn about the violation and it could affect their ability to do business with other companies.

What are some things a labour and delivery nurse does?
A labour and delivery nurse provides care before, during, and after labour. They can be employed in a variety of settings including hospitals, clinics or birthing centres.
How much notice do I need to give my employer after maternity leave?
You may need to give your employer two weeks notice after maternity leave. Your employment contract will determine how much notice is required but do not exceed the number of days stipulated in the contract or you could put yourself at risk for legal action and termination from your job.
What happens if I don’t return to work on time?
If you have been out on a family medical leave then it would be best practice to contact your HR department immediately so that they can help with rescheduling deadlines and other relevant details concerning FMLA rules. If you fail to follow these guidelines it could result in disciplinary actions such as fines up to $1000 per day which goes against federal laws under Section 74(a).
How long do I have to wait for my employer’s response when filing for unemployment benefits?
You will need to wait at least three days from your initial claim date until you receive their decision.
What’s the difference between maternity leave, parental leave & sick leave?
Maternity Leave: is paid time off for women who have recently given birth (or adopted a child). It can start from six weeks before your due date until two weeks after your baby is born.
Parental Leave: provides up to 18 weeks of unpaid time off from work to look after a new baby or adopted child if they are under five years old – this includes some periods when parents go back to work part-time. A mother could choose not to return full-time to her job, but she must still take a minimum of two weeks maternity leave.
Sick Leave: is paid time off for illness or injury.
