We’re pleased to announce that the Miscarriage Association has joined the newly established Women’s Healthcare Charity Alliance created by Simplyhealth, alongside fellow members Ovarian Cancer Action, Domestic Abuse Volunteer Support Services, and Bloody Good Period. Together, we’re working to break down taboos surrounding women’s health conditions and drive meaningful change to the support available in the workplace for anyone affected by these issues.
Vicki Robinson, Deputy Director of the Miscarriage Association, said: “We are excited to be working with Simplyhealth and our fellow Women’s Healthcare Charity Alliance partners to shine a much-needed light on these often-overlooked issues. Breaking the silence around pregnancy loss helps people to understand they are not alone in their experience and helps to validate their feelings of grief and loss.
“It is crucial that employers understand the impact of pregnancy loss, both physically and emotionally, and put in place thoughtful and supportive measures to help their employees at this really difficult time.”
Claudia Nicholls, Chief Customer Officer at Simplyhealth, said: “We are committed to providing comprehensive, ongoing support to all, at every life stage. We believe this alliance with these incredible charities will enable a deeper understanding of women’s health conditions, their impact and the appropriate support needed. We appreciate it will take time to achieve real change in supporting those who require women’s health solutions. The charities we are working with are already doing a tremendous job of empowering and driving conversations for change to better support people at work and in their personal life. Together, we hope to amplify their impact and aim to drive positive change through policy, education, and better access to the right healthcare.”
We look forward to working alongside the Alliance and Simplyhealth over the coming year, raising awareness and advocating for better, more accessible support for those who identify as requiring women’s health services in the workplace.
