    Hi everyone,
    I've the doctors in the morning so I'm gonna get my Mat B1 Form, I'm 25wks on Sunday, so hoping to have it in before then. I just wanted a wee heads up on what it's like to fill in, does my doctor/midwife need to sign anything? Do I need any paperwork? Any tips?

    Any advice would be great thanks

    Mine was filled in by the midwife and she had signed it all etc.

    I had to fill the back in tho with my personal details
    Inc national insurance number.

    They normally give them out at the 25 week appt but when you get the actual form you'll see it says on it that it's available from 20 weeks. I asked for it early as need it for work x

    I was told you have to inform your work you're pregnant 15 weeks before your due date to qualify for maternity pay, so maybe you can put something in writing and say matb1 is to follow? Just to cover you? Check with your HR, they'll know more hun xx
