    Im slightly puzzled, i know its early but i need to make sure i get it all right. Ive seen my midwife today at 17+4 i wont see her again till 24+5 she has told me i will get my MAT B1 form then.

    My question is can i put in a letter letting my employer know of my intended date to take leave before I get the form. I want to take leave from first day possible due to health issues and its something my DH and I have discussed. I know you have to give them 28 days notice but the day i get my form it to the time i want to go on leave it will be 27 days, so can i give them notice and then give them the form when i get it?

    Im not sure hun, but you should check with HR as its probably company dependant.

    I gave my work notice at approx 15 weeks and when will get MATB1 will pass that onto them. I dont think it would be a problem, maybe have a word with HR/manager?

    I dont have a HR as its a very small company i work for, infact i dont have a clue who i speak to about this sort of thing within this company, but then they havent a clue either, they kept asking me for the MATB1 form which i told them time and time again i didnt get yet, and until i took in something i found in my bounty pack, they didnt believe me. They have no idea what to do when it comes to pregnant women, i feel like ive had to teach them :dohh:

    Thats lucky Angelbunny. I was told i wont get mine till i see the midwife next. And because ive had to reduce my hours basically to save my job, Ive lost holiday too so I cant even take holiday before going on leave, which would solve this issue. :(

    i will not see my midwife until 28 weeks, 2nd baby, and she said if i need the form before that, which i do, to call gp and request it, it's just as standard form like a sickline that they fill out and sign, so any one of your care providers can give it, i shouldn't even need an appointment, will just be able to pick it up after 20 weeks.

    my employer needed my form, but i just called the MW and said i need it by ______ she SHOULD have given it to you last time so she should make an effort to get it to you now. good luck x

    i'd agree ^^ it should be HR dependant and you should be able to give notice now for example and give MATB1 form when you have it x
