Why is Paid Family Leave Important to You?

What did you - or your friends or family members - do when a new baby arrived? Lawmakers and decision-makers need to know how important paid family leave is to American families. Did you get any paid family leave after a new baby arrived? How did it all work for you? Are you someone who had to cobble together a patchwork of vacation and sick days to stay home with a new baby? Or did having paid leave enable you to establish a long-term breastfeeding routine? Share how having - or NOT having - paid family leave after the birth or adoption of a child has impacted you and your family.
