Maternity leave with second child?

I am currently working 3 days after returning back from Mat leave. I plan to go to 4 days but wandered if anyone knows how long you need to work at 4 days to get that as your maternity pay with no.2? Does it need to be much before the time you need to notify your employer, 15 weeks?

Thanks very much

Mat pay is calculated based on earnings between weeks 17 and 25 of your pregnancy so the 8 weeks before the deadline for telling your employer (at 25weeks).

If your company offers enhanced maternity pay then that may be different.
