Working Mom Says Taking Maternity Leave is Lazy

A working mom who returned to work shortly after giving birth claims that women who take maternity leave are lazy.

Working Mom Jaelyn Cox from Glasgow, who is a mother of two and an OnlyFans model, believes that women who take maternity leave are lazy.

Jayelin Cox gave birth to her second daughter in January and went back to work just five days later, as an exotic dancer, striving to provide her girls with the best life possible.

According to The Sun, “She makes so much money in her career as an OnlyFans model and stripper, she didn’t want to waste another minute sitting at home when she could be earning big bucks.”

In an interview with the outlet, Jayelin discussed her choice to return to work just five days after giving birth, despite her boyfriend’s objections.

Jayelin said: “I think those people are just lazy and looking for an excuse. It’s important to not let being a mum take over your life. Every kid needs a happy mum, and having a break from your kids is a good thing. I think it’s important to get back to your old life and back into a work routine. Sitting about the house and letting ‘being a mum’ take over your life is only going to make you depressed.”

She encouraged new mothers to prioritize their health and physical fitness while taking care of their newborns.

Jayelin stated: “I think getting to the gym the second week and dieting is a must after you give birth. And also for your relationship to start looking good again for your partner. A lot of women let themselves go after giving birth and put weight on. Then their partner ends up cheating on them because they’re not the same person they were before giving birth.”

While her divisive viewpoint found support among many of her social media followers, there was also a significant number who disagreed with the working mom.

“That’s a superpower, you go girl!” wrote a woman.

“Proper grafter, good on her! Earn as much as you can while you can,” wrote a second one.

“Good on her. Back in the day in my mum’s village, women there would give birth and be back on the fields in two days with the baby strapped on their back,” commented another.

Someone else said: “You gotta do what you gotta do. So many can’t takes days off. Everyone heals differently. I was in the gym a week later with my last.”

Her statement drew criticism from many, who pointed out that women who have given birth often require time to recover and adjust to their new routine with the baby.

“Being a mom is a job! Mothers go back to work (taking care of their children) immediately without pay. How is this any different exactly as long as baby is taken care of?” asked one.

“How could someone shame a mom for wanting to be home? I unfortunately have to work but if given the opportunity, I’d stay home in a heart beat!” wrote another.

“This women has no right to slam other mothers who chose to stay home with their children to bond or heal from giving birth, the same way she does not wished to be slam for her unusual choices,” commented someone else.

What is your opinion on taking maternity leave, and how long do you think is a reasonable amount of time to take off after giving birth? Do you think this working mom is right? Let us know in the comments.
