Hi all, just wondering if you were handed your mat b1 form. My notes say during my 20ish week midwife appointment after the scan. I had that yesterday and didn't get one so just wondering if it was accidentally skipped or if it'll be in the post? Cannot remember when I got mine with my first!
The midwife responsible for your care has to complete/sign it. You will need to ask for it at your next appointment with her now you are beyond 20 weeks. If you need it sooner, call her. She might be able to post it to you.
Literally on my way to pick mine up now! 20 week scan isnt until Thursday when I"m 21+1 and I have a meeting with HR anout my mat rights tomorrow. I just rang this morning and asked if I could come collect it and they said yes.
I got mine at 25 week appointment. You do not need to give it to your employer by 25 weeks despite what they might say. You need to tell your employer maternity leave start date by 25 weeks, you do not need to hand in your matb1 until 28 days before maternity pay start date, check the gov.uk website for confirmation. There is a lot of misinformation about this.
I had to phone up to get mine- wasnt mentioned at 20 week scan and my next mw appointment wasnt until after 25 weeks so would have been too late for dh's work (mine would have been more understanding and flexible). So rang up to chase and mw left it at reception for me to collect
