Tell your story

What was your experience of pregnancy at work, maternity leave or return to work? Did your employer give you a hard time? What effect did this have on you and your family? We’d like to hear your story?

Before the economic downturn, 30 000 women lost their jobs each year because of pregnancy discrimination and half of all pregnant women at work experienced some form of pregnancy discrimination. Since the downturn began, things have become worse.

The NHS is required to make 20 billion in ‘efficiency savings’ over the next four years. This is impacting on frontline maternity services through cuts to services.

What is happening in your local maternity service?

It is really useful for us to hear your stories so we can persuade the Government that there really is a problem. We would like to publish some of the stories on our website, but we won’t publish anything without contacting you first. We won’t use your real name or your employer’s name or anything other detail which would identify you.
