    is this true after the 1st april you get 39 weeks maternity leave ? Thats great, imagine if your due just before :twisted:

    I thought my second baby I will wait until they increase maternity leave becuase 26 weeks was not enough.

    I think it should be 52 weeks :)

    Dionne i bet they were well pissed off!! :lol: :lol:

    It should be 52 weeks maternity leave on full pay, you need money more than ever when you have had a baby, so i can't see how or why they drop the money, its cruel! :roll:

    I only get bog standard 6 weeks at 90% pay then the rest is SMP at £106 pw so I'll be going back after 3 months and at month of that will be holiday. I will work upto two weeks b4 baby due if I can manage it. May have to cut back hours and qwork shorter days, but determined to go as long as I can. Last time stopped work on Sat and had dd on mon morning.
