    Think mat leave has to run from a Sunday if that makes any difference to you (at least I was told mine had to) also thought you had to give 4 weeks notice though?

    I think that latest you can take mat leave is either the week or day of childbirth, but the best place to check will be with your HR dept.

    I am pretty sure you can work up to the date that you have your baby, although probably easiest to book first day of maternity leave as your due date seeings as you won't know exactly when baby will arrive. I'd check with HR at your work, but I'm pretty sure you don't have to take maternity leave until baby's arrival - there's a statutory two weeks off after though.
