Changing ratios for 2 year olds in childcare will not decrease costs for parents, it will simply reduce quality…

Paul Moreland wants to tax the childless as a way of increasing birth rates. FFS. How about we create a world that actually works for mothers - affordable childcare, flexible working as the default, properly paid & ringfenced parental leave - there’s a few ideas to get you going…
Over 3,000 of you have already completed our survey about summer holiday childcare and the results so far are 🤯. What an absolute mess. Please keep sharing and

On Thursday this week we were invited to give evidence to the @LondonAssembly Health Committee alongside @PregnantScrewed @fivexmore and @MidwivesRCM on the impact of #COVID19 on the delivery of maternity services in London. See highlights of @mariacbooker giving evidence⬇️

Trigger warning: giving birth during the pandemic. Yesterday, our CEO gave evidence to the London Assembly. She read out some of the stories we have received. Here is a short clip. If you want to watch the whole session then it’s here (starts 1 hour in)
NHS statistics out this week demonstrate how that midwife numbers are continuing to plummet in England. The staffing crisis is causing restrictions in choices about where, how and with whom someone chooses to give birth – and this often results in lasting impact and trauma.…

I’m not normally in to whataboutary, but knowing the behaviour tolerated in Parliament and then seeing this decision being made is absolutely infuriating. How about focusing on the sexual predators and bullies, and stop putting off women?…

If you too are dismayed by the reporting today on babies in Parliament then please sign our petition to ensure MPs are granted maternity and paternity cover… #babyleave
Babies have just been banned from parliament. Of course it was decided by a committee of mostly old rich cis men "There are very few mothers making the big decisions about our laws” @PregnantScrewed & @WRAglobal… @openDemocracy

Thank you to @stellacreasy for continuing to raise awareness of the challenges mothers encounter when becoming an elected official. The fight goes on.…
The Committee was largely made up of men. They stated that they consulted with other external groups, but we are unsure who these groups are. We were not contacted, despite recommendations that they consult with us.
The Government should set the standard for other workplaces. If we can't get this right in the place which sets our laws, what hope is there for the rest of us.
Something we have raised repeatedly with @ipsaUK but has been ignored. Until we make Parliament work for mothers then we will continue to see few mothers standing for election, this is bad for our democracy.
THREAD: Really disappointed by the @CommonsProcCom review into whether MPs can bring their baby into Parliament. The issue is not whether babies should be allowed into the chamber. The issue is that MPs need proper parental leave cover.
MPs should not bring babies into the Commons, review says @Wonklifebalance explains 'Why parental leave matters for gender equality in Parliament' 👉 👊 Join us TONIGHT fo#ParentsInPoliticscs w@PregnantScrewede#AskMumsToStandnd

If you’re in the Uk & you’re wondering what you can do to ensure progress, rather than a reversal of women’s rights then we need to organise.
Thread: Like many of you, we are so desperately sad about what is happening in America. The anger will come, but for now, we feel utterly bereft. This violence against women and our bodies, on our right to choose, is misogyny in its purest form.
When abortion is banned, women die. This is a grave breach of human rights, and the UK government cannot watch silently from the sidelines. Take action:…

@PregnantScrewed I’m lucky in that I would bring home a small profit (after childcare costs) if I go back full time, but I’m not sure I can stomach the thought of working full time for the equivalent of <50p an hour 😬

To put the expense of childcare into perspective, almost two thirds of families in the UK say they spend more, or the same amount, on childcare as they do on rent or mortgage payments, according to a survey this year by @PregnantScrewed, a lobbying group, and @MumsnetTowers.
