What to do if your Maid is Pregnant

What to do if your Maid is Pregnant?

Going by the law, these employers must notify the Manpower Ministry (MOM) if their maids become pregnant. Their work permits must be cancelled, and the maids sent home. Employers who fail to do this risk losing the $5,000 security deposit they parked with the ministry.

Under MOM regulations, those on work permits cannot become pregnant or give birth here unless they are married to Singapore citizens or permanent residents, with the Government’s permission.

Although those who get pregnant are deemed to have breached the terms of employment, doctors are not legally bound to alert the MOM each time they perform an abortion, although the Health Ministry has to be given the names of all those who have had pregnancy terminations, said a spokesman for the Obstetrical and
Gynecological Society of Singapore.

If the Foreign Domestic Worker (FDW) is pregnant, you must notify MOM’s Work Pass Division through iSubmit web portal or email to mom_wpd@mom.gov.sg with the following information:

  • Name of FDW
  • Work Permit number
  • Doctor’s letter/memo confirming the pregnancy and her expected delivery date
  • Citizenship of the FDW’s spouse (if applicable)
