Support longer maternity leave allowances

Here’s a great article on the best length of maternity leave. My favorite line: “So what was the optimal amount of time off, according to all this research? According to Christopher Ruhm, the author of the first European study, paid leave of about 40 weeks saved the most lives.” We need to support new parents, and advocate for longer PAID leave for care of newborns. Everyone benefits… babies, parents, even companies (employees not stressed having a newborn at home with a sitter or in daycare are bound to be more productive, right?)
