Fathers: Antenatal Appointments

The expectant father or partner of a pregnant woman is entitled to unpaid time off work to accompany the woman to up to two antenatal appointments, each lasting up to six and a half hours. This is regardless of hours of work, length of service and whether the role is permanent or temporary. This right does not extend to workers who are not ‘employees’ but some agency workers will be covered.
