I work in oil/gas consulting and our motto is that it's never a good time to go on holiday so just do it anyway! So long as not many people are on leave at the same time people's leave requests are always approved. It's just too hard to predict when it will be busy or quiet so we encourage people to go on their holidays and the rest of the team just cope without them.
As for having to take leave for a half an hour appointment! Insane. I can imagine in a law firm you do so much overtime anyway, seems so awful that they expect so much from their employees but give so little back

Is your career really ruined when you have a baby?
Also, I don't think my school parents would appreciate it if I were away a lot. There were a couple that were dubious about my return to work when I had a child anyway!
@Ngaiz is right though. I do have leave stored up, and I could take the odd day here and there like Sports Day etc.
Lots of wisdom on this thread...

In vic we get 20 sick days. 5 do not need a medical certificate so can be used for a range of things. The sick days accumulate too so when I got glandular fever I had weeks of leave I could use and also when I was pregnant I could start my leave earlier using my sick leave before it turned into mat leave.

We don't have to have medical certs for single days but if you have too many days off without certificates then the department will flag you.
