(There are fewer studies on what it does for the health of other family members – dads, older siblings, etc.)
You can read more about the health benefits of paid maternity leave in the piece my friend Emily and I wrote recently for FemCatholic, here.
This piece is a part of the new campaign FemCatholic has launched to request that the Catholic Church in the United States to implement more family-friendly and pro-life policies, starting with paid maternity leave. You can read more about the campaign here.
