Descrizione del progetto

The decision to return to paid work is motivated by a variety of factors: financial necessity, career concerns or goals, job security, and attitudes to motherhood. Some mothers may feel pressured into returning into work earlier than desired and may reduce or stop breastfeeding earlier than they would otherwise want to; others may make the decision to not return to paid work. Understanding the motivation behind this choice requires consideration of a mothers’ age, education, socio-economic status, and ethnicity. The decision to return to paid work or continue breastfeeding can further inequalities in breastfeeding rates and employment outcomes, leading to differing policy implications by subgroup. This project is the first to explore these obstacles between infant feeding and return to paid work and the impact on maternal wellbeing among different subgroups.
