Pink Elephants Leave for Loss Campaign

Our LEAVE FOR LOSS CAMPAIGN is gaining momentum and we are grateful for the incredible support we have received from Julian Simmonds MP for Ryan QLD.  

Mr Julian Simmonds MP and his wife have experienced their own heartbreaking loss, and they are advocating with us to allow access to Bereavement Leave for Miscarriage and Early Pregnancy Loss.

With Julian's support, Pink Elephants had the privilege to speak directly with Attorney General Christian Porter last week to continue to drive the changes needed to the Fair Work Act to allow access to this important leave.

Having access to paid bereavement leave after a miscarriage will offer couples the leave they deserve and need in order to feel validated in their grief. It will also provide them with the time and space needed to access the vital emotional support we provide. 

Thank you Julian for using your voice to support this very important campaign.  

Together, we can revolutionise the support that Australian women and their partners receive after experiencing the heartache of early pregnancy loss.
