What Another Round of School Closures Means to Working Mothers | Jewish Week

by pregnancy journalist
Sarah Lev, a 27-year-old mother of two living in Rockland County in the heart of a Covid-19 “red zone,” has turned down four job offers over the last few weeks because of lack of reliable school options for her children. “It’s been devastating,” said Lev, who worked as an ultrasound technician before the coronavirus pandemic. “As a professional, I so badly want to get back to doing what I love. And as an essential healthcare worker now is the time I want to be helping people more than ever.” But with school closures in her neighborhood extended through the end […]

by pregnancy journalist
Allison Langdon solidified her position as breakfast TV royalty when she stepped up to co-host the Today show with Karl Stefanovic in January last year.  It was a risky decision by Channel Nine after the former partnership of Georgie Gardner and Deborah Knight proved to be a ratings disaster.

by pregnancy journalist
The mother of Princess Beatrice’s stepson has advised new parents trying to balance work should ‘lean on partners and mother-in-laws’ and ‘delegate to nannys and cleaners’.  American-Chinese architect Dara Huang, 38, who shares four-year-old son Wolfie with her ex-fiancé property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 36. posted the pictures on her Instagram page yesterday.

Tian Yuan Xiang Chicken Essence– Energy Booster for Working Mums and Children – A Juggling Mom

by pregnancy journalist
Going back to work and resuming my juggling mum duties means I need more energy to stay alert for the day. While coffee is a constant companion to keep me awake, there’s nothing like a good chicken essence perk up to keep my energy level throughout the day. I was introduced to a new form of chicken essence from Tian Yuan Xiang (田原香) that comes in frozen packets. Unlike bottled chicken essence that we’re all very familiar with, Tian Yuan Xiang double boiled chicken essence comes in frozen sachets, sealing all its goodness in individual packs. High standard of quality […]

Working Mothers are Better For Children?

by pregnancy journalist
Jill Filipovic wrote a diatrabe basically arguing that working mothers are better for children on Twitter the other day. Her words are in quotes. Mine follow. “And now I am really going to get myself yelled at, but I also think the issue of example setting for a kid is a totally fair one. What example are you setting when dad works for pay and mom does the care work at home? Lots of reasons not to want to set that example for a child. Among them: Girls with working moms do better in school.” So men and women obeying […]

Why Threatening The Gig Economy Means Threatening Working Mothers

by pregnancy journalist
Many people love to hate the gig economy. It comes with instability and scheduling stress, and the burden of earning is entirely on the worker. This is the problem California State Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez was trying to fix when she drafted Assembly Bill 5, a law that puts this burden back on employers. But this law also essentially puts freelance writers out of business in California. And if the California writing economy is anything like the one in New York, a bunch of these freelance writers are moms who have good reasons for gigging. The law that goes into effect […]

School closures ‘sideline’ working mothers | The Source | Washington University in St. Louis

by pregnancy journalist
Decades of feminist gains in the workforce have been undermined by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has upended public education across the United States, a critical infrastructure of care that parents — especially mothers — depend on to work, according to new research from Washington University in St. Louis. The research, forthcoming in Gender & Society, draws on new data from the Elementary School Operating Status (ESOS) database to show that the gender gap between mothers and fathers in the labor force has grown significantly since the onset of the pandemic in states where schools primarily offered remote instruction. And if […]

Frantic, Fed Up or Fired: A Sobering Look at Covid-19’s Effect on Wilton’s Working Mothers | Good Morning Wilton

by pregnancy journalist
Let’s stipulate to one fact: everyone has faced extraordinary challenges during the coronavirus pandemic. It has forced changes and created difficulties in most aspects of daily life for the young and old, male and female, student and retired, employed and not employed outside the home. No one has been immune, either to the virus itself or its many negative impacts. But mounting evidence shows that mothers working outside the home have taken the brunt of the economic and emotional toll. A recent article in The New York Times, for example, painted a grim portrait of the pandemic’s impact on working women, […]

‘No winning’: US working mothers on losing ground to COVID | Coronavirus pandemic News | Al Jazeera

by pregnancy journalist
COVID-19 has taken a toll on virtually every part of the global economy, but not every group has felt the pandemic’s devastation equally. Women forced into the “double shift” of working and caregiving have borne the brunt of the crisis, and two million women in the United States alone have left the workforce since February 2020, with economists warning that a “lost generation” of working parents may never bounce back. To be clear, many mothers said the system wasn’t working before the pandemic. Worldwide, women do at least two and a half times more unpaid housework and caregiving than men, […]
