Extend maternity pay for mothers with premature babies in hospital

This petition had 4,847 supporters


Mothers with premature babies are still getting the same amount of time off on maternity even when their babies have spent a substantial amount of time in hospital. I want to change the law on maternity allowance and make a change for the mothers who have their babies early and have to spend more than a month in hospital. 

I believe that they should have any time from 4 weeks upwards added to their time off if their child has to spend it in hospital so that they still get to spend as much time at home creating memories with their newborns.
