Why We Need To Support Working Mums In Putting Their Own Oxygen Masks On First | Episode 62
April 15, 2022
I’m pissed off.
And I’m not going to be silent any longer.
What I am seeing in my work with professional working mums is disturbing and something has to be done.
I have spent the last eight weeks interviewing dozens of women who have reached out to me off the back of social posts I have shared around an alarming trend in working women around pervasive burnout.
There have been so many tears, so many cries for help, stories of needing to see a Psychologist and having to wait 5 months, significant weight gain, suicidal thoughts, 10 to 12 hours days attached to a Zoom screen, not moving from a desk other than to grab a quick tea and discs bulging out of necks as a result, and many of these women have contemplated or quit their highly-paid jobs.
I was so disturbed that I had to dig deeper, so, I chose to write my most recent psychology paper on the impacts of COVID-19 on working mums.
In this week's podcast, I want to share it with you and at the end, I’m going to offer up a couple of simple actions you can take if you are one of these working mums I speak of.
