Pregnancy is the condition of being pregnant or expecting a baby. Maternity refers to the period after the birth, and is linked to maternity leave in the employment context. We offer the following support:

  • Maternity and pregnancy policy
  • Parental leave policy
  • Paternity leave policy
  • Student pregnancy, maternity, paternity and adoption policy
  • Carers and Parents Network
  • Infant feeding rooms - the University provides facilities to support students, staff and visitors who wish to express milk in the workplace. There are two breastfeeding/milk expressing/infant feeding rooms on campus. These are available to all staff, students and visitors.
