Chris Donnelly started this petition to Government

One in four women suffer a miscarriage.

One in four pregnancies end in a miscarriage.

Currently there is no support given by our government to the mothers and their partners who go through this harrowing experience and therefore we are proposing change.

Sign this petition to fight for a new law on statutory paid lead for miscarriages. 

The minimum should be ten statutory days paid leave for women who suffer miscarriages, and their partners (men and women).

This will ensure vital support can be provided for those suffering the physical and mental pain following this increasingly common and tragic event, and follows a law change, in countries such as India, Mauritius, Philippines, Taiwan, New Zealand and other countries.

We believe an inclusive and compassionate Britain should be world leaders in this policy.

Miscarriages happen every day, we need our government to review this outdated law now.
