March Of The Mummies

Pregnant Then Screwed

At Pregnant Then Screwed, we campaign tirelessly against the penalties that mothers face due to systemic cultural and institutional discrimination during pregnancy and motherhood. We have the second most expensive childcare sector in the developed world, and we have the third worst-ranking maternity pay and the least generous paternity pay. Put simply; families are being set up to fail by our government due to chronic underfunding of childcare in the UK which is forcing mothers out of work and driving more families into poverty.

We took our campaign against this reality to the streets with March of the Mummies, where we called for an urgent intervention and increased investment from the government to prevent the further collapse of our childcare sector and to invest in childcare to enable more mothers to be able to afford to work.
