Workin' Moms follows the lives of four women as they juggle love, careers, and parenthood. They support, challenge, and try not to judge each other as life throws them curveballs. Whether it is an identity crisis, a huge job opportunity, postpartum depression, or an unplanned pregnancy - they face both the good and bad with grace and humour. Kate is the flawed and fearless heart and soul of the series, who has stark home/life decisions to make. She relies on her closest friend Anne, a no-nonsense psychiatrist and mother of two, who is facing a massive family challenge. Charming and unpredictable Frankie livens any dark moment as she struggles with her own instability and relationship malaise. And sweet, former sorority girl Jenny seeks an uncharacteristically reckless awakening. Together the friends fearlessly confront the polarizing and unexpected realities of being working moms.

Catherine Reitman based this show on her experiences as a new mom. In the pilot episode the character, Frankie, reveals that she need a "brain dead vacation" and when she fantasizes about being hit by a car so she can take a hospital break, was inspired by Reitman's own life. She has stated in many interviews while promoting the show, that this scene was taken almost directly from her own mommy and me group. The only difference is that none of the other mommies understand and instead made her feel alone and guilty for feeling this way. See more
