    Paternity leave for fathers in the Czech Republic

    The exciting news is forthcoming and it will directly affect the modern day family unit in the Czech Republic. It looks like mothers will get more support from fathers and simultaneously fathers will have the chance to bond with their newborn. One study reveals that even minimal father involvement in early care increases the likelihood that he will be more involved in the child’s life later on. If fathers do not create a bond from the beginning, they may feel that the mother is better at caregiving and fathers will then take a step back. Under the existing rule, a father can take parental allowance, but not at the same…

    Ectopic pregnancy: Cancer drug trial hopes to stop women needing drastic surgery

    Ectopic pregnancy: Cancer drug trial hopes to stop women needing drastic surgery A commonly used cancer drug could “revolutionise” the way life-threatening ectopic pregnancies are treated, medical researchers in Melbourne say. About 5,000 Australian women experience an ectopic pregnancy each year, where the embryo settles in the fallopian tubes instead of the uterus. As the embryo grows, it can cause the tubes to rupture, leading to extreme blood loss and emergency surgery. A chemotherapy drug called methotrexate is used to treat the disorder, but it can only be used in the early stages of pregnancy and fails in 75 per cent of cases. In those cases, surgery which involves removing…

    Reps blocks paternity leave Bill

    OrderPaperToday – The House of Representatives has rejected a bill for an act to provide the option of paternity leave to all married male employees in private and public sectors.

The bill would have also provided a procedure for the application and grant of paternity leave, as well as penalties for violations of the provisions of the bill. In his lead debate, Pwajok noted that paternity leave…

    Beyond Maternity Leave

    Katie Martin / The Atlantic This is the sixth story in a seven-part series looking at women’s ambitions in the years following college. It’s hard to run headlong into the issue of women and work without face-planting over the current state of paid parental leave in the United States. Article after article reports on the barely existent policies, punctuated with reports that range from depressing (only the U.S. and Papua New Guinea don’t mandate some paid time off) to tragic. So we anticipated hearing a lot of stories from our former classmates about how they’d struggled to return to work after abbreviated leaves, or left altogether because they couldn’t bring…
