What do you think? Studies show that women need at least 18 weeks to recover. Should employers abide by this?

Local studies here in Indiana done by Dr.'s showed that women are going back to work at 12 weeks and are still not sleeping well and tire easily.

Lol my thoughts exactly.
My ds is 21 weeks old and I have only slept for 6 hours straight once. Lately it's been on 3 at a time
