Pregnant Then Screwed is a platform providing help and advice to women who have suffered from maternity discrimination at work.
On the site, you will find testimonies of women who have taken their employer to tribunal over maternity discrimination.
If you are thinking of taking action against your employer for maternity discrimination, you can call their helpline on 0161 930 5300.
You can also write to your MP and urge her/him to support EDM1084, on the Pregnancy Discrimination and Employment Tribunal Time Limit. You can promote this using the hashtag #givemesix, and follow the campaign on Twitter here.
The Working Families charity can advise you on your legal rights at work, and on how to negotiate flexible working hours with your employer.
