She is using her platform to advocate for a societal benefit of government paid parental leave for everyone...every other first world country has it, along with universal health care. Instead of tax codes that benefit the rich, solely, our taxes fund these programs for everyone. He'll make it happen Vote for Bernie!

I agree with her sentiments. I returned to work 2 weeks after my first was born out of financial necessity. I understand that a huge corporation like NBC can pay these benefits, but what about the millions more who work for small businesses that can’t afford this? You should be thankful, I know plenty of people who had it much worse than you and rose to the occasion not feeling sorry for themselves on twitter.

Trillions of women before her have experienced the hardships, horrors and financial consequences of childbirth. Now because Katie Tur had a C-section, has some apparent body issues, and insecurities about her maternal skills, paid time off becomes a burning issue in the US? Katy thank you. I’ve bookmarked your video.

So y'all are finally admitting now that KatyTur is an activist, instead of a 'straight news' reporter? Saw this Katie. So good for American employers to follow. But won’t do it unless they’re forced my brother lives in Germany and his wife got 6 months paid maternity leave and then he also got the next 6 months so that one of them was with the child for a full year. it was great.

Why are you running this? Most Democrats choose abortion over parenthood.. KWintie Or, people vacate the hospital because their medical insurance didn't cover the continued assistance regardless of maternity leave. Why not... Medicare for All and paid maternity leave? In Germany you get fully paid Time off: 6 weeks before and 8 weeks After giving birth and then you can take one year of parental leave with 60 % of your income paid every Month

Preach! Women NEED support after birth and so do new dads. We have a lot of work to do to fix this system. PMADs and maternal mortality rates are through the roof. Let’s fix this, America! And, hey, insurance companies, please start covering postpartum doula support! Love that all worked out. Do NOT believe that anyone is entitled to PAID leave and it is NOT the government’s business to legislate the issue. People have been having babies for tens of thousands of years. Belief that you cannot do it now is snowflake! Grow up!

Of course IvankaTrump won't be on to discuss. That fell by the wayside too because she does nothing that isn't in her best interest. I was in for the pictures of Teddy but do appreciate the stand Katy is taking on this critical issue.

KatyTurNBC A lot of companies would do it, it's just very expensive. They typically have to pay to have someone fill in on top of paying you! No surprise NBC can afford that. KatyTurNBC Welcome back. I remember when my wife had our first and yep, there were complications. Just know that we were just like you in learning how to deal. I was back at work very quickly (days) but my wife was able to take 6 weeks of Maternity and even that's not enough.

KatyTurNBC In response to your final question, I'm guessing no KatyTurNBC Welcome back Katy. KatyTurNBC 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍 KatyTurNBC Congratulations Katy. We get a year paid maternity leave in Canada. I suppose we take it for granted until I see your stories. It's rough. JesseFFerguson KatyTurNBC In many countries, like Canada this wouldn’t even be a concern.

KatyTurNBC Maybe you’ll be able to do for maternity leave what Jon Stewart was able to do for first responders. KatyTurNBC When my youngest daughter was born. Men at the Calgary Public Library that I worked at, had no maturnity leave. Yes more women in a Library than men but maturnity leave 4 men I fought 4 & won! I was with both my daughters when Mom needed a rest. Yes U need to have this equality!

KatyTurNBC thank god i got my baby in germany 🇩🇪. 8 weeks of pay and after that 1-3 years off work “paid” if i wanted it. my husband stayed the first 6 years at home . then i took a break from 6 years until my son was 18 . all because the government made it happen 🙏🏻 KatyTurNBC Beautiful baby boy.

KatyTurNBC Every single second of this is perfectly real and perfectly true. 👏🏼 KatyTurNBC Welcome back! Now, , make her the host of MTP Daily! KatyTurNBC I was just curious how MegynKelly felt about paid maternity/paternity leave back when she left FoxNews to have a baby. It was a radical flip-flop for someone who believed in demonization of unions and 'entitlements.'

KatyTurNBC What a precious boy! Congrats to you and your family and thank you for speaking out for families who don’t have the pulpit you have. KatyTurNBC Welcome back, Katy! Thanks for the attention & excellent pts on maternity & parental leave. My SIL was denied maternity leave because her baby was stillborn. She was eight months along at the time. She was an NP at a hospital, making it even more shameful.

KatyTurNBC Hey Katy are you based out of DC now? KatyTurNBC 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏💖 jacobsoboroff KatyTurNBC It is vitally important. The fact that the US has no paid leave is insane KatyTurNBC I missed you!! glad you are back...XOXO KatyTurNBC the thing I'm wondering is if KatyTurNBC will make a special appearance on Meet the Press Daily tonight? Or is she only on Mondays there?

jacobsoboroff KatyTurNBC Great piece. Very happy for you and tonydokoupil. Wonderful team parenting!! KatyTurNBC You won't get much wisdom from IvankaTrump. Just a lot of hemming and hawing around, like you-know-who. jacobsoboroff KatyTurNBC Thank you so much for sharing this.
