Keeping moms and babies home together, for longer.
But first, the bad news:
I work for a small company that doesn't have FMLA. As a result, I returned to work 6 weeks after I gave birth to my kids. While my job would have allowed for a longer absence, we simply couldn't afford it. Babies change so much in the first 3 months of their lives. I often feel like I could have gotten a better understanding of my children's habits as babies if I had the opportunity to spend that valuable time with them.
