    Will miscarriage leave be a thing?

    New Zealand has recently passed a law which regulates a three day bereavement leave for parents after a miscarriage. Several members of the Dutch parliament have now asked if such a leave is also possible in the Netherlands. Outgoing minister Koolmees of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment responded by saying that his ministry will look into the possibilities. Miscarriage leave fits well with an earlier intention to look into how individuals cope with mourning in the workplace and the possibility for bereavement leave. The minister hopes to be able to publish the results by the end of this year.
    Miscarriage here should be understood as the medical term: it involves the spontaneous or unplanned expulsion of a fetus from the womb before it is able to survive independently. This is usually the case if the fetus is expelled within 24 weeks after conception. If the child is able to survive independently, it is regarded a pregnancy. Statutory pregnancy leave already exists.
