    MPs are being urged to consider the impact of losing a baby before full term - however it happens

    MPs are being urged to consider the impact of losing a baby before full term - however it happens


    A select committee is hearing submissions on legislation to grant bereavement leave for miscarriages and stillbirths.

    Rachael Schmidt-McCleave - from the Wellington Women Lawyers' Association - is among those calling for it to also cover terminations.

    She says all pregnancies that end before a live birth should be eligible for bereavement leave.

    The Association also wants paid sick leave after bereavement leave - if the woman is too sick to work.
