Coronavirus: New families campaigning for maternity extension


Hundreds of thousands of new mothers and adopters say they’ve been dealt a ‘hammer blow’ by the government over maternity leave, according to a committee of MPs.

Many services for new mothers like health visitor appointments have also been affected by the pandemic.
