Maternity Action

Maternity Action works to end inequality and promote the health and well-being of all pregnant women, their partners and children from before conception through to the child's early years.

We offer online information sheets that cover a range of topics including rights at work, benefits, maternity discrimination, breastfeeding and entitlements for women with different immigration statuses (including refugees, asylum seekers, refused asylum seekers, EU nationals, indefinite leave to remain, undocumented women, trafficked women, and women with 'no recourse to public funds').

We have a dedicated advice line with specialist advisers who can advise on matters relating to maternity rights in relation to employment and benefits, which can be reached by calling the number below.

We also have an advice service for women affected by charging for NHS maternity care.  See our website for details.
