Women on Maternity Leave are struggling with Finances and Money Worries
A report out today suggests that 30% of women on maternity leave are falling further into personal debt using credit cards and overdraft facilities to support them financially through the pregnancy period.
10% of women are cutting the maternity period short and returning to work early just to try to stop the financial pressures building up further. Some are seeking help and advice from a debt consolidation service.
Most of the mothers surveyed claimed that income in the family home had reduced by approximately 40% and they were turning to family assistance or loans and credit companies to get by.
Most women are cutting short the time they take as maternity leave and this is only to try to boost income and reduce personal debt levels that are rapidly building.
