What we do
Maternity Action was established in 2008 and is the UK’s leading charity committed to ending inequality and improving the health and well-being of pregnant women, partners and young children – from conception through to the child’s early years. We won’t give up until every pregnant woman, new mother and father and their families are treated fairly and have their rights respected.
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.
