As a Rotherham mum whose daughters were carried by her cousin fights for maternity rights for mothers of children born through surrogacy the council say a change in the law would be welcome.
As Mr Healey points out, under the current legislation there is no right to maternity leave or maternity pay for those who have children via a surrogate mother. This is in contrast to situations, for example, where people adopt children. Clearly we would welcome any changes to legislation which would benefit families and children.
