Maternity and term time.

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
Hello everyone,

me and my mrs are now the proud parents of a baby girl born on July 31st 2007 however, due to these circumstances we have a question regarding maternity leave.

My gf is now on summer holiday leave as she works at a college. She will not return to work until September 3rd.

So surely her maternity leave should start on the day she stops working but we have been told it starts from the day the baby is born.

Does anyone know of ways we can get round this as it seems really unfair that we would basically miss out on a months maternity because the baby was born earlier.
