'Workin' Moms': a Canadian sitcom all moms can relate to
(1/19)
A Canadian hit

'Workin' Moms' made its debut in Canada in 2017, and when Netflix picked up the Canadian hit sitcom in January 2019, the show found massive success.

An honest look at motherhood

The main reason for 'Workin' Moms' success most likely lies in the raw, honest, and just plain hilarious views on motherhood.

We can all relate

Nearly every mother watching the show can relate to at least one of the problems or difficulties the characters face while juggling partners, careers they love, and children.

Are you a Kate, Frankie, Anne or Jenny?

The main characters are Kate, Frankie, Anne, Jenny, who are almost like the new Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte, and Samantha...but for moms. We all have one that we like best and relate to the most.

When will Season 6 come out??

We have yet to discover the release date of Season 6 of the show but we do know that the cast and crew were filming over the summer. Since we will have to wait a bit to watch the latest season, join us now as we take a look at the main characters and what we consider to be some of the best takeaways from the show.

Kate Foster

Kate Foster is played by Catherine Reitman, who is also the sitcom's creator. Kate is a PR executive and mother of two. She is highly driven and seems to be the glue that holds her group of friends together.

Frankie Coyne

Juno Rinaldi plays Frankie Coyne. She isn't quite as pulled together like Kate and Anne. She struggles with postpartum depression in the first season, keeping her wife happy and maintaining her career in real estate.

Jenny Matthews

Actress Jessalyn Wanlim holds the role of Jenny Matthews, who probably has the most difficulty with the whole mothering gig out of all the moms. Jenny seems not to be super interested in all things babies, and her main focus is much more on her career.

Val

Valerie "Val" Szalinsky, played by Sarah McVie, is probably the most hilarious character on the show. She brings an element of wacky comedy to the show that is just priceless. Val runs the 'Mommy & Me' group, where the four main characters of the show vent and share their difficulties.

Being a mom is hard enough without facing judgment from other moms

The show's main characters are all connected by the mommy group, which in theory is meant to serve as a support group for new mothers. In reality, these groups can actually serve more as a place to snark on and judge other parents. They can also make new moms question whether or not they are doing enough when they hear other moms humble-bragging about their parenting accomplishments.

Moms often feels judged

For example, in the episode where the group shames Kate for her preferences in um..."adult films." Kate, however, is quick to dish out her judgment on another mom who brags about how much her baby loves her new homemade diaper bag.

Workplaces often don't account for the needs of new moms

The struggles Kate faces while going back to work in season one are comical but also a sad reality. Canada does have a long maternity leave, but that doesn't mean all mothers want to take it. Kate is very career orientated and wants to get back to her job but still be a good mom.

Male bosses just don't understand pumping

However, she quickly discovers that her office isn't very conducive to helping her do so. She is expected to pump in a glass-walled office, for example. Her bosses also expect her to work extra hours at the office even though she is sleep-deprived and missing her new baby.

Your baby doesn't need to do ALL the activities

'Workin' Moms' isn't afraid to make fun of all expectations put on new mothers by so-called parenting experts. These days, new mothers are bombarded by advice and often feel shamed if they aren't participating in ALL the activities.

Babies don't need to do yoga

An example of this is in season one, when Anne, who is often pretty cynical, goes out on a limb and asks the other moms..."Can't we all be adults and just admit that babies don't actually need yoga?"

Postpartum depression is real, and we don't need to be ashamed

In season one, viewers can see that something is a bit "off" with the character of Frankie. Throughout the season it becomes apparent that Frankie is dealing with postpartum depression, a topic that needs a lot more exposure.

A serious topic tackled with humour

While this is a serious topic, the sitcom manages to tackle it without depressing us. Whether it be making only giant balls in a pottery class to dunking her head in the swimming pool while showing a house to potential buyers, Frankie manages to tickle our funny bone without taking away from the severity of the issue.

Here's to hoping there will be a season 6!

The babies and the characters have grown over the last five seasons, and now in season six of 'Workin' Moms,' all the characters will face new challenges. Fingers crossed, the series is around for many more seasons because it sure does make us laugh!
