DJ Zinhle expressed her views on working mothers after remarks made by public when found out that she would be returning to work three weeks after giving birth.
According to Times live the 31 year old mother and business woman does not feel bad about going back to work just weeks after giving birth to baby Kairo fathered by the rapper AKA.
She knew that she would be ready to return back to work somewhere this time while conceiving last year in September, just after delivering her baby.
Zinhle shared her views about being a career mom and having to deal with motherhood and work at the same time, she also talked about the double standard of the burden women feel while men do not take time off.
"I used to watch my baby’s father with so much desire every time he went to work. Yes, he was expecting a baby too and he was overwhelmed, but he didn’t have to stay at home on maternity leave. After the baby was born, he doesn’t have to be home at all times to insure that the baby is bathed, fed and the nappy changed. The main duties of caring for the baby lies with the mother," she posted on her blog.
She added that she was not insensible to remarks made about her being up and about already.
"I have overheard and read a few comments about how I am back at work too soon after the birth of my baby, but I haven’t heard anyone say anything about my baby’s father being back at work so soon after Kairo’s birth. I am a working mom but that doesn’t mean I love my child any less. I do not feel any guilt about going back to work. I will still get time to be with my baby and family," Zinhle concluded.
