Pregnancy outcomes for mothers and babies have worsened during the Covid-19 pandemic, according to a review led by St George’s Professor Asma Khalil.
St George’s is committed to supporting our staff and students who are expectant parents, parents or carers. We aim to ensure that no staff member or student is disadvantaged due to pregnancy, paternity, parental responsibility, maternity, or caring responsibilities. We offer flexible working to our staff and have introduced support for student parents.
Pregnancy and maternity are protected under The Equality Act 2010 for both staff and students. Women are protected against discrimination on the grounds of pregnancy and maternity.
