Abstract

Although rare, giving birth in secret still happens in the UK. Legal decisions need to be made judicially when local authorities seek orders as to whether they are required to make further inquiries to identify and notify the biological father and wider family. Positions are argued here against an erosion of women's confidentiality and privacy in these circumstances.
