A lot of families suffer to find a nanny/ childcare for their first birth and the woman struggles to go back to work after four months. My idea is that women should get at least 6 months maternity leave and those women who suffer complications after delivery and need surgery should be entitled to 1 year maternity leave. There should be an agreement with the employers regarding this because almost all EU countries have better maternity leave conditions for mothers. Those who have children born with certain health conditions also should be entitled to at least 1 year maternity leave. Also women with comolications after delivery shoild be entitled to a midwife/carer to help her at home with the baby if she doesnt have any help from the family. The duration of the support of the midwife/carer at the mothers house should be long depending on how serious her complications are.
