10 days

The non-pregnant parent can receive compensation for 10 days of leave in connection with the birth of the child. These days provide the opportunity to be present at the delivery and to take care of other children in the family.

Can I receive compensation for the 10 days?

Yes, if

  • you are insured in Sweden. You usually are if you live or work here.
  • the child lives in Sweden or within the EU/EEA or Switzerland.

You can also receive compensation for 10 days if the pregnant parent is single and you are a close relative.
