Working Mom Benefits

I recently re-entered the workforce after a year and a half hiatus. I feel blessed to have re-entered into a part-time job with great flexibility. My job is within the school system, and I only work 16 hours a week. I have mornings and Friday's off, as well as all school holidays.

I also receive medical benefits though my DH (dear husband), so that is not too much of a worry for us.

However, I will also do without some of the better benefits, such as good maternity leave and PTO. When I give birth in late Feb./early March, I will take off 6 weeks unpaid and hope we've got enough saved up by then!

I agree with the other mom's that we should all be offered great flexibility within our jobs, as well as the opportunity to work from home at least one day a week if it's within the companies power. Here's hoping more companies will open up to working mother's and work with them, not against them! *Raises glass*
