I almost got fired from my old job because I was missing too many days due to my wife having a rough pregnancy. I ended up getting suspened for 3 days without pay so I quit and got a new job. Now I'm missing days still because she gets sick easily and we have no one around to help out during working hours.

Curious if any other dads have experienced this problem. Feel free to chime in.

Luckily, my job allows me to work from home if I need to so I could miss the days when she was sick. I missed a week and almost a half when our daughter was born and they didn't have any problems. Another reason that I love my job.

I think jobs and companies should be more conforming with pregnacies. Paternity leave, aka guys maternity leave, should be a given benifit right away but certian companies only allow it after you've been there for a year. Personally i think thats unfair. I was a new hire when Josiah was born (Jan3rd 06) and took 4 day absence and i was penalized becasue of my abcense. Theres so many circumstances where when the mother and child get discharged form the hospital and the mother can't help the child say after a extremly long labor say 24 hr or more...or persay a c-section. I would think i'd be pretty hard to take care of yourself and the baby.

I dunno, those are just my thoughts. I was just a lil upset that i couldn't spend anymore time with my wife and newborn after we got out of the hospital.

Take care guys
