Working Mothers: You Don't Need to Feel Guilty
A working mom faces pressure from all sides. On one hand, she is trying to support her babies, even if that means being stuck in a boring job that doesn't fulfill her passions.

Moms have so much guilt and expectation piled on their shoulders. But if that's you, you're not alone. You are hardworking and strong, a woman who invests time and love in the precious lives of her children.
