    We have to ask for ours in my area. I'm going to phone the surgery and get her to leave it at reception for me!

    You can't get it until after 20 weeks, but then it says you have to give it to your employer by 25/26 weeks, which doesn't leave a whole lot of time LOL

    My appointment was bang on 20 weeks so I asked for it (twice!) as my next appointment isn't til 28 weeks and your employer is supposed to have it by then.
    I'm sending mine off this week as I need Mat allowance (don't earn enough to get SMP but only under by about £10 a week lol).
    Filled in the Mat Allowance form but needed bank details so will fill that bit in tomorrow and get it posted. I'm wanting to take maternity leave as early as possible lol (29 weeks) haha.

    I got mine at 20wks but didnt actually give it to my employer until 30wks! Kept forgetting!

    HR had no issue with getting it at that point and my mat leave is all sorted and starts Monday (36wks) x

    I had mine as 24 weeks. They can't give if out before 20 weeks and some dint like giving it out before because 24is your viable week.
