There’s no denying that working moms do not have it easy. In fact, studies show that the average mother works the equivalent to two and a half FULL-TIME jobs. And with society and social media putting more pressure on moms than ever before, women across the internet are speaking out about just how challenging motherhood can be.
Sarah Buckley Friedberg took to Facebook with a compelling post about the pressures mothers face from day one, and her words have women everywhere shouting praises of agreement.
“Society to working moms: Go back to work 6-8 weeks after having the baby,” she wrote. “The baby who you spent 9-10 months growing inside of your body. Go back to work before you have finished healing or have had time to bond with your baby. Keep your mind on work, and not your tiny, helpless baby who is being watched and cared for by someone other than you. Make sure to break the glass ceiling and excel at your job — you can do anything a man can do! It is your job to show society this! Show the world that women can do it all. Rise to the top of your career.”
