The E.W. Scripps Company has released a new documentary all about moms, and acknowledging all the work mothers do and the challenges they face. The documentary report features results from Motherly's 2022 State of Motherhood survey, highlighting the difficulties in American motherhood.
The documentary, which is comprised of independent reporting that includes Motherly's data, is aptly titled, Motherhood In America.
Reporter Matt Pearl spent a day in the life of four moms across the country: Sheryl Day, a family resource coordinator who lives in Louisville, Kentucky; Jennifer Stapleton, an arts consultant who lives in Cheverly, Maryland; Theresa Alvarez-Jarrin, who works for a county housing authority and lives in San Diego, California; and Motherly's very own founder and CEO Jill Koziol, who lives in Park City, Utah.
"Through it all, we heard from four women with detailed, thoughtful and often complicated thoughts about motherhood," Pearl says. "Their voices, and those of moms nationwide, are necessary to hear."
