1 maternity leave for miscarriage on Wed Jan 22, 2014 11:04 am


Arresto Menor
hello. Last Jan. 18, 2014, I had a miscarriage. This was suppose our first baby after 10 years of marriage. I am a public school teacher in Manila. Since I am still in pain, physically and emotionally, my friend/ co-teacher is the one who is taking care of my suppose to be "maternity leave" papers. According to her, the clerk told her, if I do not have a histopathology, then I can not avail any maternity leave.

During my labor pain, it did not occur to my mind that I needed to give a sample to the laboratory for histopath. Will it be ok if instead of histopath, my TVS/ ultrasound during and after my pregnancy and a medical certificate from my Doctor will be given as a proof/document to our clerk to avail a maternity leave?

Hoping for an immediate response.

Thank you.

Best to go to SSS for clarification of requirements

I think it is needed because Histopath contains all surgical history.
From there, SSS will identify thoroughly that indeed you had miscarraige or if not only sickness.
You can ask for other options, ask nearest SSS.
