The parental defence and support association made a video criticising a law that says women who fall ill at the end of their pregnancy get less maternity leave. The video was released a little under a year ago.
That campaign “created a buzz and gave hope to mothers affected by this injustice. However, nothing has changed”, the Family League has said. They called on new MPs to make changes in a new video made this year.
“It’s high time to change the law so that every mother gets to spend the same amount of time with their new-born, whether they have been signed off work or not. Rather than just a great Mother’s Day present, it would be righting an injustice for the sake of mothers and their children”, the association said.
