Being a working mom can have plenty of “bumps” in the road (…see what I did there?) but your postpartum rights shouldn’t be one of them. I absolutely loved chatting with attorney Emily Kearney on today’s show! Emily has experience in postpartum rights in the workplace and speaking with her about our rights if we’re returning to a secular workplace post-childbirth was fascinating. We also talked about her work in the area of broader disability rights, why she feels we’re so indifferent about ableist discrimination, and why these are pro-life issues. This episode is a total powerhouse of legal, empowering goodness—enjoy!
