What is more fun and more exciting than a new addition to the family? Having a baby is an exciting time, but may also be somewhat stressful and tiring. The addition to your family of a new baby requires some planning ahead. One of those things that you will want to plan ahead is your maternity leave.
Depending on how long you have for your maternity leave, you’ll want to begin planning to take time off about midway through your 8th month. Firstly, you’ll be more than ready for a break once you’re carrying all of that extra weight. Secondary to that, about midway through the 8th month, you will begin to need more rest, as well as to want to take time to plan the new nursery, or to attend to other things around your home.
