Did you know that ‘paid time off for antenatal care’ doesn’t just include obstetric/midwife appointments? …..neither did I until I read the Government rules on Pregnant employees’ rights! The best part of this is that if you are concerned/anxious/worried or just plain clueless about birth and feel the need for more support then your Midwife or Doctor can recommend a Hypnobirthing Antenatal Preparation Class or an Antenatal Breastfeeding Workshop and you are entitled to attend AND get still be paid by your employer. It is law!
So what are you waiting for? Not only can you have the chance of a better experience of birth or breastfeeding (or both!) but you can be paid for the privilege!
