    Your midwife will give you a MatB1 form :)

    Everyone is entitled to Statutory maternity pay, it's 90% of your wages for first 6 weeks and about £124 per week after (which is taxable) :)

    Like Geek said, your midwife will give you all the relevant forms you did to sort out your maternity pay. As for the job centre, I'm not 100% sure. Maybe nip into your local office or call them, someone should be able to help you. I'm pretty sure they have a few advisers assigned to dealing with pregnancy issues. :)

    Not much help, but I ain't sure! xxx

    You can get your MATB1 form from your midwife when you're more than 20 weeks - it has to be done in person. Then you give the MATB1 to your employer, who will give you an SMP1 form explaining why you're not eligible. You need SMP1 to claim Maternity Allowance, which you can do from 26 weeks onwards regardless of when you want your maternity leave to actually start.

    I'm not bothering with a birth plan Sam. Unless you have special wishes I don't see the point as things can change anyways. Upto you though chick, if I want pain relief I'll just ask for it. Xx
