Help for New Moms in Santa Fe: Before, During and Post-Pandemic

When the pandemic forced schools and childcare centers to shut down, more than five million American mothers gave up their jobs.  Currently, The New York Times reports that 1.3 million of these women are still out of work.

As a result, the leaders of more than 200 small, medium and large companies have formed the Care Economy Business Council, which is urging sweeping reforms in the caregiving infrastructure so more mothers can return to work.

Here in Santa Fe, a small non-profit called Many Mothers has been supporting new mothers for more than two decades.  Deborah Begel reports.

Ask Deborah Begel what she likes to cover, and she’ll likely answer, “What I’m working on now.” Now that’s the kaleidoscope of news on KSFR. She broadcasts short news summaries weekdays mornings and some afternoons on the hour and longer ones at 7:29 a.m. and 12:06 pm. And that’s also the way of news, she says, because news changes constantly. New information comes in, often changing the slant and interpretation. “That’s why it’s good to be flexible and keep my mind open,” she says. “Listeners can decide for themselves what they think. What can be helpful to them is providing accurate and timely information.”
