Baba Fashionista with Pregnant Then Screwed & GIVEAWAY

Bonjour lecteurs! I hope you are enjoying the nice weather! Let’s not waste any time. Aujourd’hui, I want to go to the point! Our new fashion post is very special to us! Indeed, Baba Fashionista is more than showing you some nice clothes. Our style post is proud to introduce Pregnant Then Screwed, who supports women who have been discriminated against during pregnancy or motherhood. So yeah, Baba Fashionista with Pregnant Then Screwed gives you the chance to win a fab top or baby vest (it’s up to you), but more importantly, we are super proud to introduce you to a platform which helps mamans! So let’s do it!

3 Facts about Pregnant Then Screwed

  • This is a safe space for mothers to tell their stories of pregnancy or maternity discrimination and to receive the support and protection they need. Join their movement now and support other mamans. A friend, a member of your family, a neighbour or a colleague… Is there someone you know who has been discriminated at work? Let’s help each other and be an active member of such a fab community!

 

  • Joeli Brearley founded this project and campaign after she was sacked by her employer when she was 4 months pregnant. It’s a place where both pregnant women and mamans can share their stories anonymously. It can also help you with its free legal advice line. More importantly, it’s a fabulous network for women to find some peer support. It’s why we are even more delighted to have this fabulous project on the blog.

 

  • Their recent campaign is called #Givemesix where Pregnant Then Screwed is asking the Government to increase the time limit to raise a tribunal claim from 3 months to 6 months. En effet, the time limit has an impact on the number of pregnant women and new mums who can access justice. Mothers should not be forced to make a choice between the health of themselves, their baby and justice. Join it here! Even if you are not directly concerned, you will for sure help some other mamans out there!

If you wish to spread the word about this fab movement, nothing better than buying one of their items with excellent messages here. Joeli sent us two items to write this post and we love them!

Have a look at my great mummies’ supporter in town!

‘Proud of my working mum’ T-Shirt

I told you before. I loved being a maman at home, but I am even happier to be a working mummy.

This unisex T-shirt for children aged from 2 – 5 years summarises well the movement and it says it all clearly. Not only you will support the campaign, but you will also send the message that women are entitled to work freely even when they are a mummy!

A proud campaigner!

My mum was a hard-working lady, as my grandmother and I am very proud to have followed their steps. Yes, I might only be working part-time, but I am happy that I have been financially independent early on in my life. And becoming a maman didn’t mean it would stop!

So happy to be part of the movement!

This garment has been approved to Oeko-Tex Standard 100. It contains no substance harmful to people or the environment. It also adheres to the WRAP principles (WRAP is dedicated to ensuring lawful, humane and ethical manufacturing throughout the world). Parfait!

We love this top. Not only the phrase on it is very powerful, but the colours are cute and fun. At a retail price of £10, it’s a must-have for any enfant proud of their maman working!

And the second item we got had the same fab features!

Unisex baby vest ‘Proud of my working mum’

This baby vest had the same message with the same graphics. It’s the best way to celebrate being a working mum. You can also buy it for a friend of yours to remind them how powerful and brilliant they are.

Super proud to present you with a fab community. Yes, we promise!

I know that I had my doubts about going back to work. As I explained in a previous post, women are discriminated against once they are expecting or a mummy. So I love this garment. It shows my position clearly and it also means that I support an important movement.

We previously shared some pictures of Baba wearing this fab baby vest and many people asked me where it was from. Here is for you and I hope you will feel that you want to join this great community!

    I read a few of the stories – disgusting the way these women have been treated.

    Unfortunately, discrimination does not only happen to pregnant women.

    I have been widowed twice at a young age. Both times I was treated badly upon my return to work (different job places). I was victimised and discriminated against for being off work while my husbands were ill and after the funeral. It was Hell.

    It seems employers can get away with ANYTHING and EVERYTHING and there is nothing to protect the employee.

      And it’s a shame. We need the law to protect us better… Thanks for your comment

    It’s a great way to get the message across that your life doesn’t have to stop just because you have children.

    • Cecile Blaireau August 7, 2017 / 5:45 pm

      so true. And I really hope having this kind of posts on the blog will make a difference. Thanks for reading and your comment

  8. August 7, 2017 / 12:45 pm

    I love the fact that it’s REAL. It’s not about solely being a mum – mums are people too!

    I am a sociology/politics lecturer, I am also voice for feminism and this message has been a long time coming its about time some one blew away all the crap behind being a mum in employment . In Fact being a women in employment. Blew away this myth and ideology that we now have equality just because women are now in the work force. I am highly qualified and I have gone fairly high in my role but I have had to work 10 times harder than any male and I know I will never break that glass ceiling or get any further.. I was at a self development meeting last week and someone asked me why I wasn’t at home with my kids rather than trying to develop my self. ( it was a Saturday meeting) He didn’t ask any of the men that question. I love this blog but its not just about being a mum I have faced discrimination and dam right bullying for just being a women. Some of my friends are from ethnic backgrounds and they face double discrimination. So well done,

    • Cecile Blaireau August 7, 2017 / 5:43 pm

      Thank you so much for your fab comment. I agree so much with what you said and that is why I think it’s important that we feature campaigns like this one on our blog. The more people know about it, the more we can do even if I am fully conscious there will always be discrimination

    This is such a fantastic cause!!! I know someone who was hired as a Christmas Temp and let go. But it then transpired that ALL temp staff but her was kept on and this happened a few weeks after she told them she was pregnant. They obviously used the excuse that she was a temp as the reason for not keeping her on but there is a reason why Comet went bust – too many out of Court settlements haha!
    Thank you so much for sharing this amazing charity with us at #TriumphantTales. I wont take part in the giveaway as my 14 month old is still in 9-12 month clothes so i’ll be waiting a LONG time for him to fit into it.
    Hope to see you back next week!

    • Cecile Blaireau August 8, 2017 / 10:18 am

      Wow! that is terrible! You should talk to this person about this fab movement. Maybe they could help her. Thanks for reading x

    • Cecile Blaireau August 9, 2017 / 10:01 am

    The honesty is the best bit. When I was pregnant and gave a date for my return to work, my boss scoffed at me and implied that I was deluded. I made sure that I returned on the date I said and worked hard so that they knew I was a reliable employee.
