I don't know what to do. I have to have a c section, so the recovery alone will take 6-8 weeks. I am not sure if I should quit now and try to find another job or plan to quit a few weeks before I have the baby. Shold I look for contract work? Has anyone else been forced out of a job by a terrible maternity policy. How did you handle it?
