This is where Mompowerment comes in. I’ve started a Mompowerment community on Facebook where you can ask questions and share your own experience about being a professional part-time working mom.

According to Pew Research, 47% of moms would like to work part-time. Are you one of those moms? Maybe you are and you don’t know how to start making that happen. Maybe you’re already working part-time and would like to talk to other moms in the same situation, going through something similar at work or at home.


Working part time has consistently been the top choice for women with at least one child under the age of 18 in the three years that the question was asked.
