    As someone who is currently exploring her -shall we say limited- options regarding maternity leave, I find this disheartening that the U.S. does not recognize the benefits of allowing its workforce to have more leave during such a tumultuous time in one’s life. It is difficult enough to figure out how I will be able to take the most leave possible to bond with my baby yet also attempt to figure out how we will survive without my income for three months…
