There's been a few cases in the media over the last year of well known women taking their newborn babies to work with them. Have a look at this news article showing a MEP from Italy taking new new baby girl to work in a sling, very much in the eyes of the media.

What's your opinion on cases like these? I think it's great that this baby girl seems so happy close to her mum (who is obviously very successful) but I also wonder if the media play down the time needed to recover from pregnancy and birth. I know not everyone has the luxury of time off work, but I also wonder if the wonderful (but tiring) time bonding with your newborn baby is being hurried by society's expectations to get back to work. What do you think?
