Find out more about how you can help women to exercise their rights at work, assist them in getting time off to attend antenatal appointments or to get adjustments to their job to protect their health during pregnancy.

Government research has found that one in nine women lose their job as a result of unfair and unlawful treatment at work and poor management of health at work is all too common for pregnant women.
