I know a few Mums of premature babies and it's totally unfair that they are classed as on Maternity leave and don't have a baby/babies at home.

I am singing this position as one of my closest friends gave birth to her beautiful baby girl 12 weeks early and because of this rule her maternity leave started the day her little girl was born ( which meant she didn’t have the time to spend with her she should have as she was in hospital for over 4 weeks of her maternity) so she didn’t get to spend over a month with her! It’s mot fair! Xx
