    hey guys...

    Just wondering what kind of maternity leave we are all entitled to and when we will be stopping work.

    Here, I get 18 weeks maternity leave, two weeks of which I have to take before my confinement. In my job (teaching) that isn't so bad, as a matter of fact it's very good, meaning that I will go back to school for a week after Christmas (depending on how my driving is and the roads are, I drive 20 miles of a rural road to work and it's awful). Then my easter holidays and mid term breaks are not counted as part of maternity leave which means that I work around them, and if all goes well I won't be back to work until two weeks before the term finishes in June.

    Just wondering what all you girls are doing.

    I get 26 weeks, partially at 90% pay and then at 70% pay, but I am planning to take a whole year off and my job will be held open for me on my return. The second part of the year will be unpaid, which will be a struggle, but I think it is worth it as I refuse to be forced back.

    Roll on December 23rd!
