Forbes has just released their 2012 ‘Best Cities for Working Mothers List’ and there’s a new city at the top: Columbus, Ohio. It took the place of last year’s number one metropolitan, Buffalo, New York. But the first place slot wasn’t the only change for this year.
Adrienne Pine, anthropology professor at American University, started her day like many other working mothers.

As the third of its kind since 1999, data of the most recent study continues to support the theory that lead author Dr. Fraser Mustard (recently deceased) and his colleagues have outlined in each recommendation; that children introduced to school earlier would “maximize their development” with the help of early-childhood educators.
Only 7 hours after giving birth to her third child, Dr Helen Wright was back at work at her job as headteacher of one of Britain’s highest-achieving private schools. Parents are both in awe and frustrated by this new mother’s dedication.
