There's been quite a bit of news lately about what it means to be on maternity leave. From politicians in the United States saying women should go back to work after 2 months to authors wanting all the perks of maternity leave.
The Affordable Care Act (often called Obamacare) was implemented by most insurers on or after August 1 2012. The ACA made free breast pumps available to new moms through their health insurance, a plan intended to take away one of the biggest hurdles for a new mom. For the most part, moms who've taken advantage of this new baby bonus are satisfied.
