    No Caz, it wasn't your post at all.

    Personally I see where you were coming from.

    I could see this descending into one of those 'not my tax dollars' threads. That's all. Hopefully I'm wrong!!

    The equivalent of a mining wage!? Have you looked at payment rates? I assure you that when I was on PPL, PPS & FTB, I earnt FAR less than my basic call centre wage.

    I agree that PPL with no cap is just too expensive to maintain, they are cutting healthcare & then looking to put something like this in place? I would prefer my healthcare in tact. I actually think the responsibility should be back on employers to provide maternity leave, or at minimum operate in a similar fashion as it does now. I don't think it should be means tested and exclude high income earners altogether as (I think) it does now though.

    See I think the reason a lot of women take 12 months off is because that's what the government gives you. I knew when I had my kids and I was working as a paid employee I took 12 months because I was able to take 12 months (mostly unpaid). The fact I took 12 months meant I breastfed for that period of time (too lazy to bottle feed). Once I went back feeds were only morning and night anyway so it straightforward for me anyway.

    I guess it's chicken and egg. I don't think most women I know take 12 months becaise they want to breastfeed for 12 months (although often they do) but because they know their jobs will be held for 12 months.

    This time as i work for myself I went back at 7 months. I work to my own roster and hours so it works for me.

    I don't know @Sonja, in France you can take more than 12 months off for parental leave with your job still waiting for you but most women only stopped for the duration of paid maternity leave.

    I believe it comes down to availability/quality/affordability of childcare and mostly cultural inheritance.
