Mothers-to-be often receive plenty of advice on what to eat during pregnancy, what to buy for the baby, and how to successfully endure labor, but rarely receive words of wisdom on how to keep a job after the baby is born. In Babygate, three legal experts share practical tips, real-life stories, and essential legal information in order to help women learn about the protections they have as expecting and new mothers and, if necessary, ways to address discrimination with their employers.

Dina Bakst, Phoebe Taubman, and Elizabeth Gedmark, who all work tirelessly to advance legal rights for pregnant women and to empower working families, provide a comprehensive guide covering everything from pregnancy to nursing to parenthood and flextime that can help women know what to expect after baby is born and prepare to meet challenges at work. By clearly presenting their interpretation of the law and various employment policies, Bakst, Taubman, and Gedmark provide valuable information that allows women to advocate for themselves, effectively integrate pregnancy and parenthood into work life, and ensure fair treatment after returning from maternity leave.

Babygate is an inspirational and instructive guide that helps expecting and new parents to protect their jobs and paychecks while welcoming their little bundles of joy.
