Pregnancy Loss Pledge

HR share more about the Council’s Pregnancy Loss Pledge in support of Baby Loss Awareness Week…

We aim to ensure that working for North Ayrshire Council is a supportive environment where employees feel able to disclose their pregnancies at the earliest stage, without fear of discrimination, to allow managers to provide a safe working environment.

An estimated one in four pregnancies can end in miscarriage. North Ayrshire Council has signed up to the Pregnancy Loss Pledge which demonstrates our commitment to providing the best support we can to any employee experiencing pregnancy loss.

Find out more about the help and support available to both managers and employees from the pledge.

Raising awareness and support

This is Baby Loss Awareness Week. Promoted by The Miscarriage Association, Baby Loss Awareness Week is now in its 20th year. The Council alongside more than 100 other charities and other groups and organisations are continuing to do our part to raise awareness of key issues that affect people who have lost a baby.

Like any other week, The Miscarriage Association we will be here to provide support and information to anyone affected by pregnancy loss, however recent or long ago. If you would like to talk with one of our helpline support workers – by phone, email or live chat – the contact details can be found on the website here.

While this week can be a special time of remembrance, the increase in social media activity around pregnancy and baby loss can understandably feel overwhelming for some. Do take some time out from social media during the week, if and whenever you need to.
