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.

User Reviews

Great show! Underrated and under appreciated.
15 April 2018 | by sharonssoSee all my reviews

While not realistically portraying the experience of many working moms (as some of the negative reviews insist), it has a humorous and engaging way of highlighting many issues that come up with the challenge of juggling numerous and unrealistic expectations for working mothers (i.e., expectations to do it all, work like you don't have kids, parent like you don't have a job, etc). Really enjoy this show! Fun discovery that Kate and Nathan are both producers and married in real life too.
