Longer maternity leave better for moms, babies, families: Kiko

We laud Congress for standing up for the cause of women and families with the passage of the Extended Maternity Leave measure.

As one of its authors, we are elated that soon, we will have a law that will promote better health for both mothers and babies, and one that supports responsible parenthood.

This is also a meaningful investment on child development and families as a whole as it helps pave the path for the growth of healthy persons.

We thank Sen. Risa Hontiveros for her unwavering effort to see the bill through.

We hope that when it becomes a law, employers would cooperate and abide by the law, keeping in mind that their employees' general welfare will redound to workplace excellence and competitiveness.
