    Yep, you have to tell them by 25 weeks pregnant; however, be aware that while you are still entitled to SMP, you will only get 90% of what you were receiving between weeks 17 and 25 of the pregnancy. So if you are only getting about 123 a week (the normal SMP rate), then you will only receive 90% of that for the entire maternity leave period. First 6 weeks are 90% of pay; next 33 weeks are 90% or SMP basic rate whichever is the LOWEST.
