Author Topic: Maternity leave- how much to take?  (Read 43 times)

Posts: 6

« on: February 17, 2017, 08:37:53 AM »

I am sitting down with my boss in a couple of weeks to talk maternity leave.
I was planning on taking two weeks before my due date, but mum thinks this may be a bit optimistic as I may struggle to be at work. I look after a 2 + 4 year old.
Also I was only going to take 2 months after as can't afford to live on SSP.

Just to confuse matters mum is pregnant and due the same time as me- guessing she will take a year off as that's what she did with her second!

They are happy for me to take my baby back with me after- should I expect a pay cut as have had mixed advice?

Any advice very much welcomed  especially if you've been through this before!
Thanks xx

When you leave the job is up to you. Everyone's pregnancy is different, if you needed to leave before the two weeks would the family be able to cover you.

What would you do if the mum decided that she didn't want you to take the baby back afterwards.  Have you agreed it in writing that you can bring the baby back? As for pay I think it depends on the family you work for.
