Ive been back to work now 5weeks from being off with my second son for a year on maternity leave. We would really like another child next year if possible but im trying to find out whether I would be entitled to the same maternity benefits before we make up our own minds. Ive thought of contacting my hr department but dont really want them knowing what im planning really, I work in education.
Any ideas anyone?

You'll definately get SMP as maternity leave counts as continous service. Any occupational pay may have conditions attached to it, i.e you have to be back at work for X period before you can claim again.
