Mat leave- getting sick in the one month before due date and reasonable adjustments

I know the rules are that if you take a sick day in the month before your due date, then your mat leave automatically starts the next day.
Does anyone know, if you are working half days (ie as a reasonable adjustment, when you are ordinarily contracted to work full days) due to pregnancy related health problems and you carry on doing this in the last month before your due date, does this trigger the start of mat leave or not?

If you are off with a pregnancy related illness in your last 4 weeks then maternity leave/pay will start. If you are still working, even if part time then your leave wouldn't start unless you were off sick as said above

Reasonable adjustments would not trigger maternity leave, no.

Thank-you both. I need the reasonable adjustments to carry on working, but I don’t want to be made to take mat leave early because of it.
