Its a protest organised by pregnant then screwed about the high cost of childcare in the UK.
Lots of different locations.
Anyone going? My closest is Birmingham and was considering it.

Thanks OP. I'm not sure I can get to any, but now it's on my radar.

Was hoping to go to my local one but don't think I'll manage it now but will support in other ways.

Surprised there's only a short somewhat hidden thread on this on here? Are there others?

@Taswama no not Brum!

I am also surprised not to see more talking of this @Graphista
I don't know if there are other posts

I looked through 3 pages of feminism chat to see if there was another thread. Seems like a really important issue to me.

Yes I assume if the more comments the more visible it will be?

Thank you both. I’m not going now as I don’t know anyone locally to go with and I think I will probably come away angrier than I already am but without anyone to share my anger / frustration with.

Agreed. I'm new here. Would you mind me asking if you found any discussion on cost of outsourcing childcare, motherhood penalty, extended paid maternity leave etc on here? I'll have a search myself and see what I can find but any help would be very much appreciated.

There were some discussions from about 2 years ago (might be more). Its been tricky here since the board was split by Mumsnet a couple of years ago, apparently at the request of users of this board; and its pretty been quiet here ever since.
It would be worth starting new discussions imo. The recent changes in govt might have an impact on taxes, childcare and costs.

I am surprised there hasn’t been more discussion.

I've had a little look around and this S&G part of mumsnet seems to have a lot more traffic than childcare. Now how to start a thread..

Just go to the section and look for ‘start new thread’ button. If you @ me and others on this thread we can join in.
My kids are actually both at secondary now so it’s much less of an issue but they have special needs which really restricted our options when they were younger.

I started a thread over in S&G - domestic zombies, motherhood penalty, childcare if you're interested...
