I've read some amazing stories of supportive companies going above and beyond in these scenarios, but I've also heard some bad stories too. As a man, I have no authority on this matter. But, if I were your partner, I'd want the company to be supportive so I would encourage you to disclose.ย

Transparency. If they are the right company and really want you, it won't matter. My company hired a COO while she was pregnant and she was upfront from the jump. She started and worked for about a month until she went on Mat leave. They didn't care.ย

I generally agree, but think thereโ€™s a lot of grace in the first trimester. There can be many complications that lead to a miscarriage that are quite frankly none of their fucking business.ย

Thatโ€™s a tough one, but transparency and openness is always the best. Iโ€™d wait until I was nearing the final stages or maybe after 1-2 really great interviews (with another one scheduled) and then let them know. Definitely donโ€™t need to drop it on them in the initial HR phone screening or anything like that

As a man and as a non-lawyer (not sure the legality), I don't feel qualified to give my opinion on this. I feel for your predicament though.ย

If they have any sort of issue with it, would you really want to work there anyways? If they donโ€™t view your relationship with them beyond a 1.5 - 2 year window, then you deserve better anyways! Disclose all day, and congrats on the baby! (hypothetically of course)

Depends on how supportive the company is. Lots of companies don't like honesty..

I mean, yeah you should probs mention it. I am a woman and I would let them know. There's no shame. If they didn't want me because of it then I don't want to work at said company. Bye Felicia.ย
