Ask Louise – Maternity Costs

We employ a Sri Lankan live in maid. She is married and young and her husband has recently started a job in Dubai. I am wondering if as a sponsor we are liable for her medical costs if she becomes pregnant whilst under our sponsorship? We could not afford this cost. I am wanting to know where we stand legally with this as I would like to discuss this with her before we renew her visa. Of course she can choose to have a baby and return home if she chooses to but I don’t want to be responsible for the bill. Where does a sponsor stand in relation to this?

There is no such rule that the sponsor has to cover the maternity cost.
