I am an attorney with a focus on women’s rights in the workplace and since becoming a mum, it’s shifted to maternal rights and what is needed to allow mums in the working world to feel fully present in their kids lives without feeling guilty about work/career.
My Big Question is what support systems are needed for the mother-child bond to flourish in every way. I intend to examine these issues for a dissertation and further studies. One aspect that is high on my priorities is looking at longer maternity leave for mums to have these first crucial months to bond build a strong emotional connection with their newborns.
I am hoping to connect with like-minded women to grow and shift society norms to a mother-centric approach. I am feeling excited to come together with other women who favour this model of community and women-led empowerment!
A soft strong approach is what mums do best!
