Maternity Leave

Private Breastfeeding Advocacy discussion area.
The Advocacy topic is for forum members to discuss issues relating to
Breastfeeding Advocacy, such as purpose, strategy, techniques, etc.
Constructive debate is encouraged, but arguments about the relative merits
of Breastmilk and ABM or breastfeeding and bottlefeeding will not be
tolerated. The Australian Breastfeeding Association strives to educate the
community about the importance of human milk and support all mothers in
their feeding choices.

Maternity Leave

Post by bronnypigz » Sun Mar 23, 2008 9:54 pm

This is a link about a new enquiry to the Productivity Commission about maternity leave.

A snippet:
International studies link an early return to work to increased health risks for women, such as chronic tiredness, failure to fully recover from the birth, and the higher incidence of postnatal depression. There are greater risks to the baby's health and breastfeeding generally stops.
Do you think we should start writing letters to help push this?

(I can't think of the right words so I'll just stop now! lol)
