U344461: I'm not sure if you are planning to focus nationally or internationally for this piece, but Japan had a major issue with this a few years ago looking at both the parent and workplaces' motivation to have mothers return after giving birth. Might be a good place to look at differences/similarities between cultures.
Hi, I think you've made a good start to your chapter. I think it would be really beneficial if you included some colour. It would help break up large areas of text for the reader. These boxes could include key points/real life examples/case studies. This can be done easily with feature boxes. I've included a link here to a really helpful website which shows you different types of boxes and how to put them onto your page. Good luck!

Overall, this is a basic, but sufficient chapter. The chapter is strongest with regard to research. It could be strengthened by adopting an international perspective. The Australian information could be used as an interesting case study.
Some broader relevant research is cited, particularly in the second half of the chapter.
The chapter could be improved by reviewing research that is more closely related to the motivations to return to work or stay at home postpartum.
When describing important research findings, consider including a bit more detail about the methodology and indicate the size of effects in addition to whether or not there was an effect or relationship.
Greater emphasis on major reviews and/or meta-analyses would be helpful.
