SOLIHULL Council has recently signed the Miscarriage Association’s Pregnancy Loss Pledge to improve the support in place for Council staff affected by pregnancy loss.
In doing so, the Council has pledged its commitment to the pregnancy loss standard set by the Association.
The Council is committed to creating a supportive work environment for those experiencing pregnancy loss by showing them flexibility when returning to work and ensuring guidance and resources are in place.
Coun Bob Sleigh OBE, cabinet member for resources, said: “At Solihull Council we are committed to the health and wellbeing of our employees and to doing everything we can to support those affected by pregnancy loss.
“We are proud to have joined a growing list of signatories of the Pregnancy Loss Pledge, to provide those members of staff who have unfortunately experienced pregnancy loss with the emotional and practical support they need.”
