Dear All
I find myself in a highly unexpected situation. Having a perfectly healthy pregnancy till 37 th week suddenly at the next regular check up the baby died in utero (IUFD) with no cause. I am now having a difference of opinion with my employer in respect of my maternity leave entitlement.
As per the law 'still born' child is also a child.
My doctors report says it's a delivery and not a miscarriage in natural delivery process through pain induction.
I believe I should be entitled to 26 weeks as per the recent ammendment. Please advise if my understanding is appropriate

dear lady,
In case of your doctor certifying it is delivery and not miscarriage, you are fully entitled for the maternity leave and there is no question of curtailing by the authorities. Still born is also delivery and the consequences are different.
In the definition it is stated child includes a still born child so i think, not sure, you are eligible for MLB
