Cheshire and Merseyside Maternity Rights Advice Service

Maternity Action and NHS Cheshire and Merseyside Women’s Health and Maternity Programme have launched a dedicated Maternity Rights Advice Service for women and families across the Cheshire and Merseyside region.

The service provides free and confidential advice on rights at work and maternity pay and benefits for pregnant women and new parents who are living, working or booked for maternity care in the Cheshire and Merseyside region.

How they can help

They can provide advice on a range of issues including maternity rights at work and maternity pay and benefits for pregnant women and new parents.

  • Have you just found out that you are pregnant and want to know what your rights are at work?
  • Wondering which benefits you could claim while you are pregnant or once your baby is born?
  • Do you think that you are being discriminated against at work because of your pregnancy or because you have been on maternity leave?
  • Not sure if you can get any maternity pay?
