Hello all, First time poster here. I've scanned the existing pregnancy/baby/parent/FMLA posts but haven't seen anything on the particular situation I'll outline below, so would be grateful for ANY experience or advice. I'm in my mid-30s and will begin my advanced prac this August, applying to internship this upcoming fall. Husband and I are hoping to conceive soon and have our second child in early spring next year, which would put us with a newborn about 3 months before the start of internship. If I were in my 20s I'd just wait, but I'm not. We'd like to expand our family and hope to avoid major infertility issues. I'm wondering if anyone can speak to the experience of having a newborn at the start of internship. I'm mostly looking at academic med centers, hospitals, and think I am aiming for pediatric neuro (both my 1st and 3rd practica are highly-regarded pediatric neuro sites). I've had a newborn before so understand how it goes generally, obviously. But those who've interned at these kind of sites with a newborn -- can you give me a sense of what it was like? Relatedly, is there such a thing as delaying internship a month or two? Is this even a thing? I hope this isn't a ridiculous question, but if I could have my ideal scenario, starting internship in September instead of July, with a baby who is 6 months instead of 3 months, feels so much more doable. Thanks.
