Working Hours after Maternity
I am currently 26 weeks pregnant with my 1st baby & trying to get organised with what hours I will do when I return to work after Maternity. I definitely want to return to work (and need to!) but I want a healthy balance where I can look after my baby & still afford to live. I haven't got a clue where to start so need a bit of help & advice
I don't know what benefits I would be entitled to or where to look? I have heard that sometimes if you work less than 16 hours you can end up better off than if you work more? I really hope that doesn't sound like I'm after every benefit I can get without working for it, I just want a healthy balance of work & motherhood without suffering more than I need to financially.
I would really appreciate any help or advice you may have
