Should We Really Be Hailing A Woman Who Only Took 3 Days Maternity Leave As A Hero?

Every woman's body responds differently to childbirth. I know I felt different after each of my four deliveries, feeling better with some than with others, but I also knew that at 3 days postpartum I was still waddling around my house, my nether regions slowly recovering from passing an almost 9 pound child through it (3 of my kids were c-sections and at 3 days postpartum I was still trying to avoid looking at the staples that held my body together).One woman however is being applauded for taking only 3 days maternity leave, and while impressive, is this really something we should be congratulating a woman for?
