Back to work or not?

I'm taking the full 12 Months off Work Maternity leave and am due Back in May.
I worked full time before having our first little boy.
I'm unsure whether to go back to work or not. Obviously I don't want to and want to spend every moment I can while my precious boy is growing up. I would go back one or two days a week if I did go back to work.
Financially I don't 'have' to go back to work we could manage ok if I didn't.
But we are planning on having another baby down the line and if I didn't go back to work then I wouldn't get any maternity pay, and holiday pay sick pay etc.
What advice would you give? Would you go back for one or two days and keep your hand in to get the benefits I've worked for 10 years for? X
