Maternity Rights

Antenatal classes and your maternity rights

Did you know that under UK law you are legally entitled to reasonable paid time off to attend antenatal care? Most people know that this care includes any midwife, GP or hospital appointments. What many people may not know though is that it also includes attending antenatal classes, parentcraft classes and even relaxation classes. This includes travel time too! Should your employer request it, we can provide you with a letter of attendance so that you can attend classes.
