    Why We MUST Value Mothers in the Workplace with Latched Mama Melissa Wirt

    Why We MUST Value Mothers in the Workplace with Latched Mama Melissa Wirt

    The average working mother in America is unsupported and overwhelmed.
    It is a tragedy that starts in the workplace and extends all the way up to government policies and agendas.
    Women change profoundly after each birth and baby. To see this process and transformation as a simple inconvenience continues to be a dire mistake.
    Our strengths and experiences as mothers amplify our potential as employees and professionals.
    Melissa Wirt is the founder and CEO of Latched Mama, a  breastfeeding and postpartum apparel company whose parent-friendly policies are setting a new standard for flexible work.
    In our conversation, she doesn’t hold back on the ways our country is failing mothers at the societal and workplace levels. Listen in for the raw truth on going back to work after a baby.

Love this podcast

I was guided to this podcast by a mom group on Facebook after someone had asked about postpartum rage, which I have experienced with both of my children. So I went to the podcast to listen to that particular episode and then stayed for ALL the other episodes!! I love all the info Maranda has to share and the guests she has on are all so great! I love listening in every week now!

Honest Raw Real

Maranda has come to the postpartum realm with her knowledge and activism to see women and families not survive postpartum but to thrive in postpartum. She is resource of knowledge and anyone who has been blessed to take her course understands that concretely.

Holistic and ancestral perspective of the postpartum period is key and needed in this world today! I enjoy listening.
