Ellen Pompeo Explains Her Short Maternity Leave

In the new interview of Self magazine, Ellen Pompeo explains why she rushed back to work on Grey’s Anatomy after having her daughter Stella Luna, now 6 months old.

The actress went to work just 4 weeks after giving birth.

She explains,”A lot of people couldn’t understand why I wouldn’t take my maternity leave. I felt like I needed to work while I had this opportunity. The writers and producers were really gracious and wrote my scenes so I could preshoot them.”

Did you go back to work soon after having your baby? How many weeks maternity leave did you take?
