Maternity Leave start date

Hi ladies,

Happy New Year!

Now we’re in 2019 (yay!), i’ve started to think about maternity leave and when I should plan for it to start! 

I know on average babies are born after 38 weeks, but I’m thinking i should have a week or two to rest before then. Not sure yet though.

Has anyone else started thinking about it? What’s you plans?


  • Hi BeingBella,

    I'm going to try to hold off until the baby decides to come, that way I'll have more time off with the baby. Although, your plan doesn't seem like a bad idea, a week to get things in order and rest up is a pretty good idea!
