Are You Crazy Miss?

Updated on July 23, 2011

Because Marla was pregnant with her child, she made preparations to use family leave that was obtain over years of on the job service. One day, Marla was approached by her female supervisor and was asked how long did she plan to be off from work. Marla said she didn't know because this was her first child. The supervisor hinted that she knew some women who return to work in two weeks.

What a bunch of bologna! Well, every woman...pregnant woman in America look out. Don't be surprise if your supervisor expects you to return to work the next day or the next week. This is a time when you must use common sense, unfortunately people are really losing cite of themselves.

Giving birth is a serious matter. If a mother gives birth to a newborn and return to work the next day, both the mother and child are at risk physically and emotionally. After the mother gives birth, she has to be observed by the medical staff for twenty-four to seventy-two hours. If a mother is running a fever, this is a sign to the doctor that observation is definitely needed. Most of the time the newborn gets to leave the hospital early.

The time after childbirth is an opportunity for the mother and newborn to bond with one another. Most concern or first time mothers spend this time to learn how to breast feed (which is also a part of bonding). Mothers are getting a chance to observe their babies to see if they have all their limbs or any birthmarks.

Why would a mother want to return to work right after childbirth? Physically, your body is going through the process of eliminating waste such as afterbirth (months of no menstruation). Afterbirth's odor is worse than a normal menstruation, lasting several days or more.

What if a mother has a cesarean, they are not in any shape to do a lot of moving around. The mother is definitely susceptible to catching a cold, getting an infection or even relapsing (making you feel as if you are in labor again).

Miss, would you really want to go back to the days, when women had babies while working in the field. Some states are already trying to take away bargaining rights for union members' benefits. Do you really want them to mess with the Family Leave Act next? Are you crazy?
