Maternity leave or SAHM?


Did you stay at home after the baby or go on maternity leave and return to work? I had plans to return to work only for financial reasons and things have gotten so bad politically at work (not just me - HALF my dept is leaving!) that I've changed those plans and am putting in my 2 weeks. I'm excited to not have to rush back after like I would after maternity leave but a little nervous. Curious about other women's experiences
