    Question after having a miscarriage...

    Advertisements
    Should a woman receive time off with pay? Why or why not?

    I think she should have the option of using her sick time. If she has paid sick time that is great.

    I think she should be allowed a few days of personal time and sick time because she may have to have a D&C and need to recover and also need atleast a few days for personal time.

    Yes, absolutely - time off and pay (if not whole than in part)

    When you have a miscarrage your body reacts as if you've actually given birth, in some ways - you still need to physically recover.

    And it's emotionally and mentally traumatizing to most - just the same as any death in the family.

    I had a D&C after my MC and I needed to take a few days off.

    I had a lot of pain and cramping afterward besides that I really needed to get my head straight. It was an emotional time for my husband and I. Luckily, I had PTO but even if I didn't I would have called in sick.

    I think there should be an option (3-5days) but it needs to come out of PTO or just have unpaid time off.

    That's exactly what I was thinking.

    definately, i think she should get at least 3 days to a week off. both for physically recovery, and to mourn for the loss.
