Working mothers and infant care: a review of the literature.

Abstract

1. The number of women who returned to work after childbirth increased steadily through the 1980s, with many mothers returning to work earlier than ever before. This trend has caused new mothers, their employers, and legislators to examine the issue of infant day care. 2. Infant day care availability, arrangements, and cost influence maternal work force participation. These concerns may also impact on the physical and mental health of the working mother. 3. Further research is needed to determine if and how infant day care concerns affect worker productivity, and to determine how to obtain quality day care at a reasonable cost.
