Title THE OBSERVER: Working mothers ‘up to 40% more stressed’ Media name/outlet The Observer Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 27/01/19 Description They may have had more than a sneaking suspicion that it was the case, but now working mothers have the data to back it up: they are indeed more stressed than other people – 18% more, in fact.
And that figure rises to 40% for those with two children, according to a major study that analysed 11 key indicators of chronic stress levels.
