This is our first baby and we are trying to make some plans. Well, as much as we can plan. I know things can go unexpectedly. I was wondering how much time your partner takes off when you have the baby. I know it is different for everyone. I just want to get some opinions.
My partner pretty much has to give his work notice of how long he will be taking off. It can change but I guess they want a tenative plan. He will probably have about a weeks paid by then. I am not sure how fast my family will come down to help. It might be right away it might be weeks later. I know if things go badly I will need him around longer but I am just thinking of if things go pretty smoothly as far as the delivery and recovery. Also I should probably mention that I will have to drive him in when he goes back.
Any thoughts? opinions?
