Hi, first of all sorry to everyone who finds themselves needing this board sad
I recently had a MC at 12 weeks and got my maternity exemption certificate through the door the next day. It says to send it back if you MC within 24 weeks of pregnancy but will I get in trouble if I keep it?
I don't want to use it, only to keep as a reminder with my scan picture.
What has anyone else done in this situation?

Not at all. I kept mine. Keep it safe

I sent mine back but I can't imagine they would chase you up for it - you could always say you lost it ?

Thanks both, maybe I'm being a bit weird wanting to keep it but I have so little to remember this one with.
Thanks again x

I kept mine in exactly the same circumstances and never heard anything. I don't think it's weird. Sorry for your loss.

Not weird ! I kept my baby on board badge (hoping to use it next time) but it has always felt sad that I didn't get a scan photo to keep. We got a memory plant for the garden instead in the end.

I cut mine up and binned it in anger last week :-(
