    Hi dani not sure if you will be able to use your nhs pregnancy excemption card but that only took 1week to arrive after I went to the doctors to fill out the form for it. Hope this helps you..xx

    Hi Dani,
    Your midwife can issue you with a MAT B1 form at around 16weeks for before the estimated week of delivery, so around your 22week check-up. If you have been given a appointment shedule if may say there when you get it. This form is used as proof of pregnancy for your empolyers when sorting out Maternety pay, as its a signed certificate from your midwife confirming your due date. So this is probably what the council will require from you.
