SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Does anyone do this? I mean I know it can happen, but does anyone chose to do get pregnant while in a psy.d or ph.d program? It is not like you can take off 6 weeks for maternity leave. I am just mulling over options. I dont think i want to wait 5-10 years to start a family, but when in grad school do you have the time? During the 4 years of school, internship, post doc? I dont know. What do you guys think?
