This confession is heartbreaking. This mom reveals the brutal but honest truth about being a mother in the US. New moms do not get enough time off… and the little time they get is often unpaid. It's not a secret that raising a child is expensive. Therefore, many women, including women who

What’s more, statistics show that discrimination at work is not a myth: 14% of women who take maternity leave, which is around 340,000 women a year, find their jobs under threat. And this is happening everywhere: new moms worldwide are often judged by employers as less reliable and productive. At the same time, their loved ones may impose harsh demands on their new role as a working mom.
