Once Mother’s Day celebrations end, a lot of moms face challenges that cards and candy cannot solve.
Parenting can cost women in the workplace wages and opportunities.
In the U.S., we tend to focus more on the baby than the mom once a child is born, leaving lots of women feeling helpless in their post-partum lives.
And maternal mortality rates are highest in America compared to other developed nations like Canada and the U.K.
We’ll explore these and other issues in this series. You can follow along with the shows here:
- The Push To Reverse America’s Rising Maternal Mortality Rates

- Jada Pinkett Smith On Sharing The Secrets Of Motherhood
