Should Women Receive Paid Leave After a Miscarriage?
New Zealand has approved legislation that will allow women to take 3 days of paid leave after experiencing a miscarriage or stillbirth. The leave also extends to couples who are grieving miscarriages or stillbirths through surrogacy or adoption. This will make New Zealand only the second country, aside from India, to allow for this type of leave. The bill was designed to allow women and their partners time to grieve without having to take sick leave. Some say that 3 days of paid leave is not enough to process the loss of a child, but many feel the bill is a step in the right direction.
