According to the Labor Law in the UAE, “a working woman is entitled to 45 days maternity leave with full pay which includes the period before and after delivery, provided she has served continuously for not less than one year. The maternity leave is granted with half pay if the woman has not completed one year of service. At the end of the maternity leave, a working woman has the right to extend her maternity leave for a maximum period of l0 days without pay.”

The new mother has the right to two daily intervals to nurse her child (each interval does not exceed 30 minutes and is taken out the work day) for 18 months following the delivery.

    Having a baby is a time of joy but there is no joy having a baby in the UAE.
    You spend too much time traveling and less time with your child. No one wants to leave their child while working these hours as someone else basically looks after and teaches your child their ways.

    Only woman who are not working will benefit from having a child in the UAE, this is not a place to bring up children

    What has this got to do with having a baby in the uae “Most cases of unwed expecting mothers reported in UAE are of women from the sub continent”. Must this appear here?

    I would like to advise people who see the costs of provate hospitals as prohbitive if yuo do not have insurance to try Al Wasl. The facility, staff, service & experience were excellent and the cost a fraction of the private hospitals.

    Your article fails to mention one crucial piece of information – only Al Wasl Hospital and Dubai Hospital will accept babies born before 34 weeks and to be accepted you must preregister before you are 4 months pregnant. If not, they will not accept you and will let your baby die on the street and there are countless accounts of this actually occuring.
