I think being a stay at home mom is wonderful, but some do women choose to work or have to work and I don't see why we can't just look at the pros and cons of both situations

you have to pick what works best for you and your family and your goals

That's not counting women who have pregnancy related complications, of course.

I plan on morphing into a rich white woman when I get pregnant. I aint doing sh*t but having my hair braided because perms are bad for the baby, watching my shows and working out a little. but not working...well maybe up until 3-4 months. then I will just use my maternity leave and vacation.

I think it should be mandatory that companies have at least 1 year of maternity leave for women


I agree with this

I have 4 friends (I only have black friends) that are/will be stay at home moms for the most part

two are in their 50s and rarely if ever work....they only do so when they want to

another does a very easy work from home job, that I honestly don't consider it a full time job

another is actually on the fence, her husband does not want her to work, but she wants to (sort of)

*oh wait one of them (one of the older ladies) is married to a latin guy....

America needs A LOT of improvement on it's maternity leave. 

Many business/companies also view starting a family as detrimental to employees' productivity. 

I know of women who lost their jobs because their bosses (always men) discovered they were expecting and thought it would interfere with their work. 

Just another reason why we need more women in leadership positions, especially within companies.

Mommy friendly companies are vital to career women being successful.

how can maternity leave issues be changed? not just in 1 company but overall/...i never gave this issue a thought but i might want to have kids some time in the near future and this is worrying me. 3-4 months just isn't enough time and you shouldn't have to use your vacation as maternity leave, that's just not fair.

Every Mom deserves strong financial, emotional, active support

It just isn't reality, every mom doesn't have a wealthy husband or wealthy family or a sugar daddy

And just have to do what they do

Ideal? No, but many make it just fine

President Obama made every effort to help with maternity leave , but the fools fail to pass many of the bills . I would advise any first time mom to stay home for the first 6 months if possible . I can't describe the feeling of bonding with your baby . Now if you are on the bus stop with 5 toddlers and a infant , while the man drives around in a benz ? I can't stand with you .  Leave that dog . Work pt while attending some type of school . I agree with purpul .. Heart

^ Read The Price of Motherhood: Why The World's Most Important Job is Still the Least Valued.

In one part of the book, the author specifically discusses how our companies aren't accepting of mothers (from negative attitudes towards mom to inadequate maternity leave) and she gives suggestions on improving the issue overall.

Great book.

on one hand we tell women to study hard, earn degrees then tell them as soon as the have a child to never work again....makes no sense

especially since many have to take out loans to get an education
