Surrogacy maternity rights

A South Yorkshire teaching assistant whose twin daughters were carried by her cousin is fighting for maternity rights for mothers of children born through surrogacy.

Jane Kassim from Rotherham was born without a womb and her cousin Amy Bellamy, 26, agreed to help her to have children.

She negotiated time off with the primary school where she works to spend time with her newborn daughters, but was not entitled to any maternity leave.

Current law gives no entitlement to either maternity leave or statutory maternity pay for people who have children through a surrogate.
