New Rights for fathers to attend Ante Natal Appointments from 1 October 2014

The Children and Families Act 2014 enables expectant fathers, and partners of pregnant women, to take time off work to attend two antenatal appointments with the expectant mother. In March 2014 a government press release announced that this right would come into force on 1 October 2014.
