Our Mission

The Advocate You Can Trust To Protect Your Rights As a Mother

Our mission is to empower and inspire women to become educated about their rights at work so that they can embrace their motherhood journey without compromising their career growth.

Welcome Mamas!

Congratulations! If you’re here, it means you’re 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. 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… I mean… WTF!? When you ask your HR about your leave they will say things like “these run concurrently” and you’ll think to yourself, “I just want to know how much leave I can take.” Your boss is probably 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 our workplace rights and the result is that we 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 Bluey for the kids and get your yellow pads out! Because mama is about to go to law school.


The Liberated Mother Portal

Have you noticed how no one has ever taught you about your rights at work? And we mean ALL of your rights, because we promise you that you have more rights than you think you do. Let’s change that!

Join our Liberated Mother Portal and learn what your rights are and how to advocate for yourself while protecting your professional track. Using the law as a tool, you will become empowered to propel yourself into a life on your own terms. Learn how to transform this knowledge into ACTION.

The Portal provides all of Daphne’s secrets, provided through videos, checklists and handouts. It also provides step-by-step “how to” scripts and tools so you can succeed as a woman in the workforce. It has scripts to give notice of pregnancy, ask for maternity leave, set up a pumping plan, request equal pay and address discrimination or harassment. Learn how to get paid during your time off. You deserve a workplace worthy of your time and talents. Connect with other powerful women who are educated advocates through community and support.

About Daphne

I’m a mother as well as owner of Delvaux Law, the nation’s FIRST law firm devoted entirely to women’s rights at work.

I help mothers 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.

Mothers 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.

Amy "I had a wonderful HR generalist during my pregnancies but this is still so important because I’m pretty sure HR can’t say “hey, by the way, did you know you can ask your doctor for more disability time if you aren’t ready to come back?” Ultimately, I feel like they need to walk the fine line of keeping the company’s interests in mind (ie not volunteering information) even if they personally want to help the women. My first pregnancy I was out for 4 months just going off of what my HR rep told me. My second pregnancy after finding mama attorney I was out for 10…"


Sandy "Daphne is amazing. She really takes the time to listen to you and understand your situation. She did a phenomenal job and fought until the end. I would absolutely recommend Daphne a million times over for anyone needing a lawyer. She won’t just win your case, she will fight for you and what you deserve. I can’t say enough about her and her entire team. She communicated with me the entire time, making sure I knew what was going on behind the scenes at all times. She really takes her work seriously. When life throws curveballs at you and you find yourself in need of an amazing lawyer, trust in Daphne."


Kai W. "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."


Adi N. "I want to thank you deeply for all that you do! I was empowered and today I received the yes!!! I will be off for 12 extra paid weeks after a pregnancy disability leave. Then I will take the 12 weeks bonding with baby 🙂 Success!"


Jessie M "Thank you for being an advocate for parents. Thank you so much for the very informative and empowering "Know your rights" webinar. Often working women are afraid to ask for a leave or an accommodation in fear of being seen as unproductive or inflexible. We bear the burden of having to remain productive, even if that means working through the night. You educating us on our rights and helping us educate our employers is truly eye-opening. I am sharing this webinar with many parents."
