Are parents entitled to shared parental leave if their baby is due before 5 April 2015 but is born on or after that date?

No. Shared parental leave is available only in relation to babies whose expected week of birth begins on or after 5 April 2015. The actual date of birth is not relevant for the purposes of eligibility for shared parental leave.

Similarly, if a baby expected on or after 5 April 2015 is actually born before that date, the parents' eligibility for shared parental leave is not affected.
