How EI maternity benefits in Canada work

  How EI maternity benefits in Canada work There's lots to do before baby arrives—finish the nursery, pack your hospital bag and apply for EI. This is how EI maternity benefits work in Canada and why you need to apply for them before your newborn arrives.If you have insurable employment (meaning, your employer deducts EI premiums from your wages or salary), or you’re self-employed and are registered for the EI program, and have worked enough hours to qualify, you can apply for benefits as long as the industry you’re in qualifies.

When Nick Roberts heard he was going to become a dad , he decided to stage his own maternity shoot starring him. He put the hilarious photos , taken by his mate Stephen Cwiok, a professional photographer, on Facebook.

And the pictures are too brilliant . Father- to - be Nick Roberts from Boston, Massachusetts, decided with his photographer friend Stephen Cwiok to do a ‘paternity’ photo shoot instead.

When one couple in the US discovered they were expecting, there was no ultrasound polaroid held between them in a social media announcement. No Beyonce-esque flower throne. No little shoes between big shoes with the sign “soon we’ll be three”.

They did something completely different and, understandably, it’s gone viral.

Father-to-be Nick Roberts from Boston, Massachusetts, decided with his photographer friend Stephen Cwiok to do a ‘paternity’ photo shoot instead.

The woman who was actually expecting, Brianna Magee, went along for the ride and the results are hilarious.

  Our big mac day! Bride and groom make pit stop at McDonald’s in the middle of lavish $95,000 wedding This bride and groom made a very unusual pit stop in the middle of their extravagant $95,000 AUD wedding – stopping at McDonald’s to fill their rumbling stomachs. While Zeina Chaya had always dreamed of the flowing white gown and fairytale wedding, she never imagined her ‘happily ever after’ would include a Happy Meal.When 29-year-old Zeina and her ‘prince charming’ Gabriel Chaya, also 29, booked their lavish big day they had joked around about stopping at the golden arches for a snack.

Like this dad , who staged his own " maternity " photo shoot . In a Facebook post, that has since gone viral, expectant dad Nick Roberts detailed how the photo shoot came to be , with the help of his friend, Stephen Cwiok.

When 26-year-old Nick Roberts found out his girlfriend Brianna was pregnant, his friend and gym buddy Stephen Cwiok approached him with a brilliant idea that could help him celebrate the news. “My buddy Stephen came to me with the joking idea of doing a maternity shoot … featuring me

They had to make it real, of course, so Nick decided to eat several McDonald's double cheeseburgers with fries and created a food baby instead.

Same, same but hopelessly different.

Still, Nick says it brought him "closer" to the pregnancy and surely that's the point, right?

"If I'm being completely honest, the setting, the occasion, the awful cramps from the double cheeseburgers, it all brought me so much closer to the pregnancy," he posted to Facebook alongside the gallery.

"Now, I'll never know what being in labor feels like, but I feel in my heart it can't be too far away from eating A LOT of fast food. I'm truly blessed to have had this eye-opening experience."

Speaking to Mamamia, Nick said the experience was a strange one and that both he and Stephen are happily surprised by the public's response - their Facebook gallery has received hundreds of thousands of comments, shares and reactions.

"It felt very strange," Nick told Mamamia. "But like nothing else in the world!"

"The most surprising thing about it all is how much everyone loves it and thinks it's funny. I think it's great. Stephen and I love making people laugh so this was amazing for both of us."

Brianna has given birth since the photoshoot and, as for Nick's little bub-to-be, we can only hope he's enjoying the pregnancy 'glow' and that people are offering up their seat as he rides the bus.

It's only fair, right?
