Service summary

Maternity Action

Maternity Action is the UK’s leading charity committed to ending inequality and improving the health and wellbeing of pregnant women, partners and young children – from conception through to the child’s early years.

We deliver free, specialist advice on employment rights, maternity pay, maternity benefits and the rights of migrant and asylum seeking women through our telephone helplines.

Have you just found out that you are pregnant and want to know what your rights are at work? Do you think that you are being discriminated against at work because of your pregnancy or because you have been on maternity leave? Wondering which benefits you could claim whilst you are pregnant and once the baby’s born?

We offer information and free telephone advice on rights at work for pregnant women and new parents on our National advice line 0808 802 0029 and our London advice line: 0808 802 0027.
If you can’t find the answer to your question on our website, you can call our Maternity Rights Advice Line for free, confidential telephone support and advice.

Our team of specialist advisers can offer advice and information to help you understand and take up your rights and entitlements throughout your pregnancy, maternity leave and return to work.

National advice line 0808 802 0029 - open Mondays to Fridays, 10 am to 1 pm.
