The Advocate You Can Trust To

Protect Your Rights As a Mom

Our mission is to empower and inspire working mothers to become educated about their rights at work so that they can successfully combine motherhood with their jobs without having to compromise their family life or career growth.




If you’re here, it means you’re either pregnant (woohoo) or just had a baby (awwww) or assisting a loved one with pregnancy or baby (good for you!)


You’re also here because you want to educate yourself about your rights at work. Maybe you want to know how to maximize your time with your baby, maybe your boss is just an absolute jerk to you since you became pregnant, maybe everything has been different since you've returned from leave, or maybe you just got fired right when you needed your employer's support the most.


Whatever the reason, you’re probably exhausted and you don't want to deal with legal stuff. You may be reading this with your phone resting on your bump in between work meetings or while serving as a mattress for a sleeping baby. You're busy, and the last thing you need is to sift through endless regulations.


And this … is … confusing! How many more acronyms do we need!? FMLA, CFRA, EDD, PFL, FEHA ... I mean... WTF!? STFU! When you ask your HR about your leave they will throw these crazy acronyms around and say things like "these run concurrently" and you'll think to yourself, "I just want to know how much leave I can take." When you tell your boss you're pregnant he or she may congratulate you and say "I'm so happy for you!" But you know they are more worried about your upcoming absence than excited you are experiencing the miracle of life. Truth is, when it comes to your family, your employer may not know or care how to help you. 


I see so much incorrect and misleading information about maternity leave and moms' rights and the result is that women just don't know what to do and who to trust. Let's change that. This platform will give you the information in a digestible format so you can move on to creating and sustaining a new life while also kicking ass at work. As a mom, there's nothing you can't handle.


So ... put on Peppa Pig for the kids and get your yellow pads out! Because mama is about to go to law school.

MAMAttorney & Supermom!

I'm a mom as well as an award-winning senior trial attorney at Gruenberg Law, the largest and most established employment law firm in San Diego representing employees.


I help moms when there's an obstacle or conflict at work preventing them from caring for their babies or themselves, or when having a baby puts their job at risk or actually results in job loss. When companies don't follow the rules, the burden falls on our families. 


Moms need an advocate who understands their rights, and an advocate who understands life as a working mom, including how important it is for your time with your baby to be stress-free so you can heal and bond without anxiety or pressure. I have a track record of success in standing up to corporations that don't respect their pregnant employees, including a $1,000,000 result for a pregnancy discrimination case. You need someone in your corner to help you navigate the complex laws ignored or abused by your employer, so that you can focus on enjoying your sacred time with your new baby. I've got you, mama.

"Thank you so much for what you are doing! I don't feel alone at all. You give us the courage to stand up for ourselves as parents and not have to choose between work and our kids. So kindhearted and full of compassion. Forever grateful for helping me and my situation."
