Hi guys, has anyone had any experience with asking for dr certificate for DP after a csection?
We have no friends/family support and DH isn't eligible for any paid leave with his company. He's taking a week LWOP but I'm just wondering if I'm struggling whether we could ask the OB or GP for a certificate for him as a carer.
Wanted to suss out on here before I potentially embarrass myself with a stupid question to doc.

Not related to dr certs but have you looked into Dad and Partner pay for your DP?

Yes you can get that. A guy at my work got the full 6 weeks off as carers leave. I'm a solo mum so after my CS my mum took a couple of weeks off to care for me, all covered by a certificate from my ob. He would have given me however long I asked for.

My DH was eligible for two weeks parental leave. However, he also got two additional weeks carers leave because I had a c-section.
