Everyday millions of women in the United States give birth to children, and fathers are not a part of their children’s lives during the crucial newborn bonding period because they will not be able to pay the bills otherwise. Most men have to use their paid time off and sometimes even sick days, just to spend a week with their new child. They are literally choosing between keeping a roof over their heads and bellies full or their family! The new moms are forced to fend for themselves taking care of basic household duties and children when they they should be resting after a physically traumatic event. Recovery from childbirth includes dealing with baby blues and depression, physical pain, discomfort and exhaustion and many other issues. These women are not given the proper time to recover because of these things. This needs to change! Help me to partition our law makers and let them know that dads are parents too, and they deserve paid time off with their family!
