Surrogacy Maternity rights

You are now entitled to surrogacy maternity rights the same as a couple who have children following adoption.    Paternity rights are also available.  This extends to time off for ante-natal appointments and applies only in cases where children are due or born after the 5th April 2015.

In order to claim these benefits, you must intend on applying for a Parental Order to become the child’s legal parents.  You will need to speak to your employers about the notice that they require from you in relation to the pregnancy.   We can make your application for a Parental Order as soon as possible after the child is born.
