A new study says moms who work are happier and healthier than moms who stay at home.

Researchers at the University of North Carolina studied more than 1,300 mothers in the U.S. for a 10 year period. They found moms who worked had fewer symptoms of depression and were healthier, in general. Researchers also say moms who worked part-time did a better job at balancing work and home lives than moms who worked full-time. The study is in the Journal of Family Psychology.
