purely out of interest, sparked by watching a program just now on surrogacy.
if the surrogate mother has a regular job, which offers maternity leave (which, from what i understand is paid leave?), and is also being given money by the eventual parents, do the same maternity leave rules etc apply?
just wondering, as it seems that in some cases (and i realise not necessarily all cases), women may have some financial motive to become a surrogate mother. if so, does she also get all the maternity money too?
taking a break from a job, while getting paid, in order to get more money.
just wondering how it works, not a comment on the ethics etc.
