Maternity Action champions maternity rights at work, in the benefits system and in access to maternity care.
They promote gender equality and the health and well-being of all pregnant women, new mothers and their families.
They offer online information sheets that cover a range of topics including:
- rights at work
- maternity discrimination
- 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')
There is a dedicated advice line with specialist advisers who can advise on employment and benefits for pregnant women and new parents, which can be reached by calling 0808 802 0029. The advice line is open:
- Monday: 11am - 2pm

They also have an advice service for women affected by charging for NHS maternity care. Please see their website for details.
