Maternity Action is the UK’s leading charity committed to ending inequality and improving the health and well-being of pregnant women, partners and young children – from conception through to the child’s early years.

When maternal and paternal rights are respected, we reduce gender inequality and improve the health of women and children. Respecting maternity rights is good for our society, our children and each of us.


We offer free advice for mums and dads worried about their rights at work and rights to benefits and healthcare.

We have a track record of successful campaigns raising the awareness of the rights of pregnant women, young children and their families.

We offer training for community workers, clinicians and others to provide advice and support to vulnerable women and their families.

Maternity Action’s research focuses on the experiences of vulnerable women, babies and families.
