Guide to Pregnancy and Maternity Leave for Postdocs

The National Postdoctoral Association has put together a guide with general information about pregnancy and maternity leave for postdocs. The guide covers recommendations regarding maternity leave, keeping research going, and addressing maternity issues with supervisors and research teams, including a suggested timeline for each of these steps. The guide is intended primarily for postdoc women who are pregnant or are planning for pregnancy, but the Association is developing a second guide for fathers about paternity and adoption leaves.  Click here  to access the guide.
