Findings show that for women from the 1973-1978 cohort, having children corresponds to changes in employment. Having a first birth was associated with changes from full-time to part-time paid employment, and other employment changes. Part-time employment remains an alternative for women managing both paid work and family. This report helps provide the some understanding on the needs of women with the hope that best practice work-family policies would be developed.
