While maternity leave is a must, after the woman feels fit, it is totally her choice of she wants to get back to work or not. A senior wellness consultant said that getting back to work may help the woman to stay active and happy. However a mandatory period of rest of about 6 to 12 weeks is essential. Getting back to work may also help in dealing with postpartum depression.
