In C-D v S-T ET/2505033/11 the Newcastle Employment Tribunal made a reference to the European Court of Justice concerning whether under EU law, a woman who becomes a mother by way of a surrogacy arrangement should be entitled to paid maternity leave to bond with her baby, establish breastfeeding and maintain and develop her family life.

The European Court of Justice heard the case on 19th March 2013.
