Pregnancy and parenthood
Maternity clinics support and advise expectant parents on pregnancy and the prospective parenthood. If the parents are not married when the child is born, paternity must be confirmed separately. When a female couple receive a child with the help of fertility treatment, the non-biological mother can be confirmed as the child’s other mother. Apply to Kela for family benefits.
