NZ approves leave for miscarriage, stillbirth

The New Zealand Federal Parliament has unanimously passed legislation giving mothers and their partners three days of (paid) bereavement leave following a miscarriage or stillbirth.

 

From Member of Parliament Ginny Anderson: “This is a Bill about workers’ rights and fairness. I hope it gives people time to grieve and promotes greater openness about miscarriage. We should not be fearful of our bodies.”
