Lauren Hatfull started this petition to UK Government and

Parents of twins and multiples are lucky to be blessed with more than one baby but it is also an extra mouth(s) to feed that was not expected when planning on becoming parents. Current maternity/paternity pay is based on the costs involved when bringing a singleton child into the world. Those of us who have twins, triplets, quads etc. are expected to care for multiple children with the same funds from the government. 

With this petition, I propose that the Government increase the SMP/SPP (Statutory Maternity Pay/Stautory Paternity Pay) for parents of twins and multiples to reflect the extra costs and expenses that are involved in raising them and also offer nationwide discounts on infant necessities (milk, nappies etc.) 

Please sign this petition to help make a change! 

Thanks in advance, 

Lauren Hatfull
