#MyBabyMyCareer

That very moment a second line appears on a pregnancy test, a woman’s head and heart begin to fill with questions like “how will I keep my job”, “who will watch my baby”, and “how will I pay for everything?”. Regardless of marital or class-status, women hold a unique place in the parenthood agreement. She is expected to be the primary caregiver for her child.
Due to the infrastructure in place in the United States, this often means taking a step back from her career or ceasing to work altogether.

RE-THINKING THE WORKPLACE FOR WORKING MOTHERS

This November, Save the Storks is launching a national marketing campaign with the hashtag #MyBabyMyCareer to celebrate motherhood and advocate for a change in our society’s accommodations for working mothers. We live in a country where women often have to choose between financial security or motherhood. We live in a country where many women take weeks of unpaid leave sacrificing their income to spend time with their precious newborn. She then hurriedly returns to her job, left with outrageous daycare costs.

SAVE THE STORKS IS CALLING ON COMPANIES TO
MAKE ACCOMMODATIONS FOR WORKING MOMS,
LIKE INCREASED MATERNITY LEAVE,
EQUAL PAY OPPORTUNITIES AND MORE!
SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR WORKING MOMS
BY USING THE HASHTAG
