New Mom's Sarcastic List of Society's Expectations Has People Applauding


Sarah Buckley Friedberg, a mom of three, recently took to Facebook to highlight some of the insane expectations that society has for new moms. In a post that has been shared over 50,000 times since it was posted last week, Friedberg blasts everything from maternity leave to television time. 

Friedberg writes:

"Society to working moms:"

"-Go back to work 6-8 weeks after having the baby. The baby that you spent 9-10 months growing inside of your body. Go back to work before you have finished healing or have had time to bond with your baby. Keep your mind on work, and not your tiny helpless baby that is being watched and cared for by someone other than you. Make sure to break the glass ceiling and excel at your job- you can do anything a man can do! It is your job to show society this! Show the world that women can do it all. Rise to the top of your career."
