More New Mothers Stay Home

Work & Family - :: More New Mothers Stay Home: More new mothers are staying home, even when it causes financial pain.

Some reasons women drop out of the work force after childbirth:
• Desire to nurture babies in their first years

• Poor quality of available child care

• High cost of acceptable child care

• Lack of extended maternity leave

• Lack of flexible return-to-work options

• Decision to switch to a more family-friendly career
