Am trying to sort this with work atm. Can someone just confirm - the 11th week before EWC - is this the beginning of the 29th or 30th week of pregnancy?

It has huge financial significance!

My understanding is the EWC is defined as the week (running Sunday to Saturday) which includes your due date.
It's referred to by the date of the Sunday.
so then you count back 11 weeks from there.

If you go this website and click on 'get personalised help on maternity rights' you can fill in your due date etc and it produces a calender with the 29th week (earliest date for ML) and the qualifying week (25th) which is really helpful.
