Hi everyone, I'm still kind of new around here. I mostly just lurk around the pregnancy and childbirth boards. I'm expecting my first in April after UPing which will be a UC.
For anyone who has been there, done that, what were your experiences with getting the birth certificate? Should I really just suck it up and and offer up my arm to the vampire to get that piece of paper certifying that I am indeed pregnant? Or will the paper not make one wit of difference in the long run? I think I remember seeing a UCer who said that CPS does a home visit, is that correct?
I know my employer requires me to be "cleared" before returing from medical leave, will any old doctor write me a piece of paper for that? Sorry if that seems like a dumb question, I've *really* avoided doctors for a while now and haven't had a good experience with one in a long time. In the off chance someone has taken maternity leave with the same employer, I work for Northrop Grumman.
Baby will probably be born in Baltimore City, although it could very well be Baltimore county (south of the city) if we haven't moved by that point. Any thoughts on backup hospitals if I wind up being one of those unlucky few who needs to transfer?
