The National Postdoc Association recently published A Postdoc's Guide to Pregnancy and Maternity Leave. Developed by Kathleen Flint Ehm and Amelia Linnemann as part of the NPA's ADVANCE project, this resource provides general information on pregnancy and maternity leave for postdocs, including tips for keeping your research going and talking with your supervisor. The guide covers topics such as: Maternity Leave and Salary; Maternity Leave and Federal Funding Guidelines; and Making a Plan for Returning to Work. It's a great resource for PhD students, too.
