    Does anyone know when you receive your MAT B1 Form confirming your due date to hand to your employer to let them know when you will be taking maternity leave.

    The form itself says it can be issued any time from 20 weeks onwards. I text my midwife last week & she posted it to me. I'm 23 weeks now x

    Legally you don't have to hand anything to your employer until 15 weeks before. I wouldn't worry about it, so long as your keeping your employer in the loop, they know what the outcome will be!

    I got mine at my 25 week apt, your midwife signs it and puts your due date on, all I'd did was put my name and NI number on and handed it in to my boss. He's a bit slack tho so it's probably sat in his in tray at work still x

    Ill just hand my form in and see what happens. Different workplaces have different ways of dealing with maternity by the looks of things. Ill just hand it in and ask if they want my mateenity dates now. Xx
