    Yes. A better choice would be allowing women to bring their kids to work, or have an in-house daycare. Women have babies, it’s part of life. It’s just the way it is.

    I believe it does in some businesses not so much the big corporations they know she's coming back due to the child she now must support, the smaller businesses can't afford for the women to be off and they can't afford to replace her and pay her maternity leave.
