A survey of 1,200 mothers by thebump.com and Forbes Woman found that 92 percent of working moms said that their jobs don't end once they leave the office.

They report feeling stressed out when it comes to juggling home and work duties.

A whopping 89 percent of stay-at-home moms also reported feeling overwhelmed by their responsibilities - and that their partners offer little relief when it comes to helping out, reports the New York Daily News.

Almost 85 percent said they didn't get a break when their partner comes home from work, and 50 percent said they never get a break from parenting at all-though 96 percent said their partner gets time off.

Both at-home moms and working moms said they felt resentment about their unbalanced burden of responsibilities, and a third said they feel their partner could do more to help out around home.

Women from both groups reported feeling like a 'married single mom' even while having a partner around.
