New research study has been concluded by charity and campaign group, Pregnant Then Screwed, which has spoken to 3,686 pregnant women and mothers to understand what the impact of Covid 19 is having on their careers so far.
25% of employed mothers also say that their employer has not been flexible to ensure they can manage their paid work and childcare responsibilities.
Consequently most women (55%) believed that they would want to or need to work fewer hours in near future to be able to manage the additional responsibilities at home front.
There is definitely a need for dads and employers to step up and come forward to support mums by sharing responsibility and providing flexibility. Otherwise we are at a risk of seeing many women forced to exit workforce during and beyond this pandemic.
