We will issue your maternity pay to you for the duration of your maternity leave. Your maternity leave is the time during your pregnancy in which you don’t have to work, starting six weeks before you give birth and ending eight weeks after. In the case of premature or multiple births, the postnatal maternity leave during which you are eligible for maternity pay extends to 12 weeks.
