I am wondering when i will be able to go on mat leave.. My supervisor keeps asking me when i'll be leaving and he has no clue how it works. I would like to stop working as soon as i can... hopefully around 7 months... does anyone know the earliest your mat leave can start? i know some of the other girls at my work left a couple months before they were due. i don't if that was due to medical or not. I plan on talking to EI tomorrow in person but i thought i'd try here first.
You can go on medical at anytime really.
I went off at 24 weeks because my job was too stressful.
you just have to talk to your doctor about it. I really wouldnt suggest going on mat leave as early as possible because then its less time home with the baby afterwards.
I was on medical from may-end of july 2005 and then mat leave starting the end of july and my baby was born the beginning of september.
my mat leave ran out in july 2006
Our 3rd baby GIRL coming in August ♥
I also took medical leave, a month before I was due. I just told the doctor I was way too tired (teaching 30 12 year olds is exhausting on the best days, let alone when you're 8+ months pregnant) and he put me on medical leave. So I got full pay for the last month, although I was off on medical leave. Once DD arrived I went on mat leave.
