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.

We could learn a thing or two from some European countries regarding their paternal leave.

Some countries, (i.e. Denmark and Finland if I remember correctly) give adequate maternal and paternal leave, with benefits.

In the book, the author compares our maternal leave to that of other countries and shows where we are lacking.

I'd prefer not to work, however 2-income households are almost a necessity at this point. 
 
My mother worked while she was pregnant with me, however her employer was understanding and let her close her office door and take an hour long nap each day.

The US needs to adjust their parental leave.
That being said I would work when I'm pregnant..

Does everyone hate their jobs here lol?
I like home but I took an extra long weekend and I was wondering about what was happening at work and if anyone was taking my clients.

I don't hate being at work.
I like it so unless there are health restrictions I will probably work a while into my pregnancy.

It also depends on the job.  The worst I saw was a nurse who was in her 8th or 9th month who didn't know when to take a break.  She could barely do anything for her patients and had to call for help.

I worked up to my due date for both of my pregnancies.  I have two children under the age of 5 and I work full-time from home.  Not working has never been option in my marriage - but for long term reasons. I worked to hard to get to where I am professionally.  Dropping out of the workforce would just about guarantee that I would NEVER be able reenter at the same level or pay grade.  Also, the money I make now goes towards retirement and future savings for our kids.

Unless you and your S/O come from generational money, or your S/O is seriously independently wealthy (as in hedge fund billionaire money) I cannot fathom taking care of a child on one pay check.

It will get better when a more family centric model is adopted vs. the patriarchal model used today.

Higher incomes for women mean a higher family income. Maternal and paternal leave can be staggered so that children can bond with both parents without de stabilizing the family income.

Theyre not hard to find. Theyre usually in a STEM field w/ a similar upbringing
