    Default Letter for paternity leave

    Dp has to hand in a letter to his work to be eligible for paternity leave that basically stated he became a parent again and on what date etc.

    I was supposedly meant to ask the hospital or dr for this before I left, but I wasn't really in the right frame of mind to do so.

    He now needs it and I'm unsure as to who to ask for it, since I don't even fully know what I'm asking for.

    I did just call the hospital where I had dd, but they had no idea. I don't know whether to call the ob who attended the birth? Or my regular ob from a different practice...?

    Has anyone else had to get this?

    How odd. Are you on maternity leave yourself? If so your certificate with an EDD on it should suffice.

    Otherwise I would just ask your OB or even a GP.

    Never heard of that before!

    It's actually pretty standard I got one for dp from my regular ob but since you have had bub can you perhaps present birth cert? If not just your gp will b easy. Have you had your 6 week check up? That person can do it for you

    Haha I wish he could just send a pic!

    I am on mat leave, but my letter was handed in well before I gave birth- all I needed was my dr to say yes she's pregnant, this is her edd.

    He apparently needs something along he lives of "joe banks and nomsie had a baby on 8/8/13, signed dr love" or some rubbish like that?!?

    I am worried that my DH work might try to pull something like this before approving his leave. We had leave forms in for June this year it he had to take the leave in January instead as we lost bub then and I needed him with me when I had to birth our son, we have put his leave forms in a couple of weeks ago and haven't heard anything yet yesterday it dawned on me they may ask for proof (which my DH is not happy with). I wold think you should be able to get a letter from your gp or your OB (that you usually see).

    Gah it's all so hard! No birth cert yet. He needs this letter within a week, and hubs is only 2 weeks old... So I guess I should call gp practice and ask if he can write one out for me?

    Surely a birth certificate would suffice?
