👌About Us

Alt text: parents and children together for March of the Mummies Exeter protest

Pregnant Then Screwed is the UK’s leading charity working to end the motherhood penalty 

Our Vision

A society where care is valued and in which pregnant women and mothers in all their diversity are enabled to fulfil their potential; creating a stronger, happier better future for us all.

Our Mission

We are the voice of working mothers in the UK. We have a strong and deep connection with our beneficiaries. We provide world-class advice and support to mothers to help them improve their confidence and wellbeing, to give them the tools they need to challenge discrimination in the workplace, and to support them to find work that works for them. We advocate for change and raise awareness of the specific challenges faced by working mothers. We challenge deeply entrenched stereotypes about the role of mothers in society. We work with employers, politicians, women and men to make change happen. We publish compelling research to educate, inform and lead the debate.  

Our Principles

We want radical change: Constantly striving for an overhaul of the way we live and work – we don’t believe small tweaks work. We will work with politicians, employers, collaborators and the public to achieve this.

We translate complexity and make it simple: Ensuring our beneficiaries understand complex legal language, policy, data, research and legislation that could impact them both positively and negatively. 

The lived experience of the people we support provides insight and informs everything we do: Leaving ourselves room to be reactive to issues, opportunities and campaigns as they arise is critical. Our experience and expertise ensure we can identify important campaigns and projects. 

Create and nurture a deep and strong connection with our beneficiaries/community: Not only providing our beneficiaries but ensuring we include them in every element of our work. Ensuring PTS feels like a friend and confidant, and makes our beneficiaries feel as though they are part of the team. Talking to our beneficiaries as we would talk to a friend.

To be the voice of working mothers we need to listen, always: Being willing to adapt and iterate based on feedback from our beneficiaries, and we always listen no matter how uncomfortable it may be. We don’t think we always know best!

We will challenge and be provocative to create change: Not being afraid to show our anger. We believe anger is a mechanism for change. We will, on occasion, campaign on and talk about the issues that others are too nervous to discuss. 

 

Our Core Activities: 

  1. Free advice line giving pregnant women and parents advice and answers for queries related to parenthood and work. Including: Redundancy, Flexible working, childcare, leave and pay. The advice line is staffed by CIPD level 7 HR professionals and is operational 60 hrs per week. 
  2. A legal referral service providing women with one hour pro-bono employment advice supplied by our legal partner, Primas Law. They advise on cases where discrimination is evident, the woman feels as though they are being pushed out of their job, they are appealing a redundancy, or may need support when settling an agreement. 
  3. A mentor scheme which supports those who experience pregnancy or maternity discrimination to take legal action against their employer. Offering peer-to-peer support throughout the tribunal process.  
  4. Events which help mothers and pregnant women rebuild confidence and find work that works for them.
  5. Campaigning for changes to legislation which reduce the gender pay gap and improve workplace equality for pregnant women and mothers. 
  6. Changing public attitudes through traditional and social media outlets. 
  7. Developing research on issues related to the motherhood penalty – including data collection and case study documentation.
