It's a week of celebrating women here at Saks to Salvation. Today it's Jacinda Ardern's turn. The Prime Minister of New Zealand welcomed new baby Neve Te Aroha Arden Gayford and isn't she LOVEly?
Out of respect we've given the new family a bit to breathe and enjoy the immediate media press release that came when announcing the huge news that she was the first PM to have a baby while on duty. I've been a newborn mom several times over and those first weeks are precious moments and a supportive family is of most importance. Her badass husband is going to be a stay at home dad while she runs the country. Naturally, the news went global. Her Labour Party homepage touts national security, intelligence, arts, heritage and child poverty reduction. Stoppit. No don't, Jacinda. Keep going girl. The world needs more wonderful women like you. Congratulations to the new whanau.
