Vote Now! – Should maternity leave be extended….

smallest thingsMaternity leave for mothers of premature babies begins weeks, sometimes months before they can bring their baby home. The Smallest Things has written before on why we think maternity leave should be extended for mothers of babies born too soon, but we’d love to know what you think?

Should maternity leave be extended for mothers of very premature babies?

    Should be more in place for fathers as well. Quite often us dads are just forgotten about, my employers were less than sympathetic towards me when our son was born at 28 weeks.

    I know I really struggled with my prem daughter (in SCBU for 6 weeks), it didn’t feel like she was actually born until the day she came home. We just went through all the standard early days stuff 6 weeks after her actual birth.
