Extend Maternity Leave to 12 Months

Review the current maternity leave policy.
Increase Maternity Leave to a minimum of 12 months
Extend paid Maternity Leave to 10 months
Offer a shared Maternity Leave allocation between both parents.

Why is this important?

Insufficient Childcare in Ireland for babies under 1 year

Some mums have to switch to formula feeding after breastfeeding for 6 months as they go back to work

Ireland is one of the worst countries in the EU for Maternity Leave entitlements.
