    hey hunny, my MW gave me my MATB1 form at my 20 week scan, but i have no idea who im supposed to give it to at work, my supervisor told me to post it to a certain person, so i did but then i was told i should have had a 'Pack' which i haven't got, i just got the little form that the midwife gave me, anyway i posted my form to the woman i was told to and then she said she'd send me the 'pack' in the post - im also sooooooooo confused so im hoping some one has the answer for us haha! xxx

    You're supposed to get your MATB1 form at your first appt after you reach 21 weeks I think. I got mine at about 22 weeks and just handed it in straight away. It runs in my mind you have to hand it in 15 weeks before your due date but I could be wrong.

    You need to have handed it in to your employer by 25th week (not sure if beginning or end of) so you need to get it ASAP !

    I went to my doctors the other day to collect mine and they said that they wont give me my MATB1 form until I am 26 weeks

    Remember to photocopy it so that OH can take it to his employer to get paternity leave. My mw told me to do that it it hadn't occurred to me.

    I emailed my employer last week to see when they needed it by as I haven't got mine yet (m/w won't give it out till 26wks - which I wasn't when I last saw her) & they emailed back saying they need it no less than 21 days before due date :confused:

    Who knows!! I've kept the email though so if they complain when I send the form in (I'll get it at my next m/w appointment - at 29wks) they can bugger off!!

    Hmmm. I'm sure I read that you have to inform your employer with the MatB1 by the end of the 15th week before baby is due.

    I got mine on Monday and gave it in today. How confusing that some midwifes aren't giving them out till 26 weeks... my maternity record has a space for mw to tick to confirm that it's been given & discussed by 24 weeks.
