Hi everyone. I would like to ask a couple of questions related to family planning. I haven't seen anything updated around so here it goes: - When must the employee warn the boss about the pregnancy? I am asking this because I don't know if by law there is anything forcing the woman to tell the boss as soon as she knows or anything else. - When/How to get a midwife? The doctor can suggest one correct? Or is it a more common way to get one? - For foreigners with babies... I did my re-search on internet on the law for this matter but just to confirm... a child born in Germany might get German nationality, am I right? If parents are from EU.
Hi Everyone, This might be a strange question, I tried searching for an answer but couldn't find one... I am in early stages of pregnancy. I know that I can't be fired from my job no matter what because there is Mutterschutz. But my partner is starting a new job soon, and I am wondering when he should inform his employer and if he has any kind of protection so that they don't fire him because of my pregnancy? He might want to take a couple months of Elternzeit when I have the baby, which I'm not sure the new employer would like... Thanks
Getting a little desperate here so I'd appreciate any help / experience based opinions! My girlfriend gave birth to our son in June, three weeks prematurely, and when we arrived at the hospital we were asked if we were privately insured. We are privately insured through AXA, we took out the policy shortly after finding out about the pregnancy, because she was told by their rep that she gets a private room with them and special care from a 'chef-artzt'. However, there is a clause within the policy that states they won't pay out for the birth of a child if it takes place within the first (I've forgotten how many) months, and our son was born six days before the date that they would pay out. We've spoken to Allianz to ask if they can do anything for us, but as you would expect, their response was negative. So, the bills have been rolling in over the past couple of months, and we're somewhere around the €4700 mark now. We've spoken to AOK to see if they can pay out, just to cover the costs that they would normally cover, but they're saying that because we told the hospital we were privately insured, they can't do anything about it. As it happens, we didn't get a private room, and the only time we saw the 'chef-artzt' was the day we were leaving the hospital, he came in, cracked a joke about us not being married (awkward) and then pissed off, barely even looking at our baby. It's all a bit stressful, and with our financial situation tight enough as it is, it's impossible to foot a €4700 bill, which would normally have been taken care of by AOK, if we'd have just told them we weren't privately insured from the start. Again, any help is greatly appreciated.
