What role do primary partners play in supporting moms?

While 78.4% of mothers have supportive partners, there's still work to be done in balancing parenting responsibilities. A noteworthy minority (17.9%) only “somewhat” supporting them with co-parenting duties, and 3.6% of respondents without a partner that supports them at all.

“Often parents don’t know how to talk about sharing the load or finding shared goals and approaches to parenting. Without conversation, parents often revert to cultural and family norms which result in moms shouldering the bulk of the mental and physical load of parenting.”

Wendy Davis
Executive Director, Postpartum Support International
