New Zealand approves paid leave after miscarriage, and encourages the world to follow

Ginny Andersen, the Labour MP who introduced the bill, said it would make New Zealand only the second country to provide such a benefit to her knowledge. India allows women six weeks of leave after a miscarriage."I can only hope that while we may be one of the first, we will not be one of the last, and that other countries will also begin to legislate for a compassionate and fair leave system that recognizes the pain and the grief that comes from miscarriage and stillbirth," she said in parliament during the final reading of the bill.--You can read Ginny Anderson tweet here: by CM @iynna
I was granted a few days of "bereavement leave" after my second miscarriage (I was a classroom teacher in the US at the time) and while it wasn't much, I deeply appreciated that. Not something I asked for, but something the department head arranged on my behalf.
