Handicap Parking for New Mothers
- President George W. Bush
- United States of America
The average new mother is kicked out of the hospital after 48 hours; yet, the typical recovery time is 6 weeks. During this time, many women still have to run their household. This includes things like grocery shopping, newborn check-ups, and post-natal doctor visits. Women are expected to park in regular spaces and trek through a crowded parking lot. Parking in handicapped spaces would ease a new mother's recovery.
We the undersigned would like to have temporary handicapped parking privelages for women who have recently given birth. The temporary permit would only be valid for a period of up to six weeks- the suggested recovery time for giving birth. This privelage would greatly assist all new mothers.
