The Café Express: Working Mamas - Your legal rights and responsibilities as a working mama

  • DeWitt Cottage 150 Linden Ave Lynchburg, VA, 24503 United States (map)

Working mamas have their own set of obstacles to navigate in the workplace. Join us to discuss your challenges or questions about going back to work after maternity leave, pumping at work, your rights under the Family Medical Leave Act, and suggestions on how to navigate those complicated HR policies.

Intimate round table discussions to nurture, support and educate women from preconception-postpartum. Our Cafés exists to surround you with community and provide you with evidence-based education on important maternal health issues.

Our programs are FREE and OPEN to the public. See details below for information regarding our FREE childcare, up to age four.

Children under one, can stay right with you. For children between the ages of one and four, we offer FREE on-site childcare.

---Childcare slots are limited and registration is on a first come first serve basis. Childcare reservations will be accepted no sooner than a week prior to a Cafe event and can be made by e-mailing childcare@themotherhoodcollective.org with the following information:
