    Default Sick leave options

    As someone who returned to work when my oldest was 7 weeks old I can understand the financial side of it. However nothing prepared me for the emotion of leaving my newborn and going to work for 10+ hours. I would find a good GP and get as long as you can off on sick leave if your employer will allow. I know ppl and baby bonus isn't a lot per fortnight but for our second I called all of our debtors and put payment or interest only arrangements in place so we could survive on half annual leave til the ppl came thru.

    Does sick leave roll over onto the next year?
    I thought only annual leave did that?
    Can you see if you might be able to have long service leave? Since you have been there such a long time?
    Also check to make sure you have childcare lined up? (if using a center)
    Most places won't take a baby under 6 weeks and some 3 months.

    My sick leave rolls over each year, it would depend on where you work.

    Luckily I don't have to worry about that. My husband is just starting his own business, so will be able to look after bubs when I go back to work.

    I don't think I'll be ready emotionally to return to work straight away either.

    Can anyone recommend a good GP in Adelaide?
