The conflict between work and family life remains an ongoing battle, with many countries guilty of enforcing traditional gender roles.

While companies in many countries take parenthood seriously, offering sufficient benefits for new mothers and fathers, some others deny them the necessary benefits.

With a whopping 406 days of paid leave, Croatia is ranked as the best country for employees who have become mothers, followed by countries such as the UK, Albania and Serbia with 365 days of paid leave. Australia also offers a full year for new mothers, but without salary.

Meanwhile, the US, Lesotho and Swaziland offer just 84 days of leave (unpaid as well) to be ranked as the worst employers for new mothers.

An infographic produced by NeoMam studios about parental employment benefits around the world is given below.
