Wednesday May 7 - Best for Babies

Time: 10:00am-11:00am

Best for Babies:

The Child Development Case for Paid Family & Medical Leave


Babies are born ready to engage with the world around them. And they need relationships with their most important teachers – their parents – to help shape the architecture of their developing brain. These relationships take care, consistency, and above all, time.

Join us for a briefing on how national paid family and medical leave can help provide this critical time for parents to care for and bond with their very young children, improving outcomes for the entire family and benefiting employers, taxpayers, and the economy, now and in the future.


Co-Hosts: Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Representative Rosa DeLauro

Presented by:, Zero to Three and National Partnership for Women & Families
