Mat B1 Form

Had my 20 week scan today at the hospital and everything was perfect 😊.

Just wondering when/where do I get the Mat B1 form that I need to give to my employer? Do I need to contact my doctors surgery for it (where midwife is based part time), or will it be sent in the post? Based in the UK.

I had to ask my midwife for it at my 25 week appointment. I'm sure you can get it earlier, but you will only be given one so don't lose it!

I got mine at my 28 week appointment as it has to be given face to face by the midwife. Typically you get it around 20 weeks normally.

Thanks all! Think I will contact them as I need it by 25 weeks to give to my work. Next appt 24 weeks May be over the phone and a bit last minute!

My GP did one for me when I realised I wouldn’t see a midwife face to face until 28 weeks and also needed to give it to my employer by 25 weeks. I sorted it with the GP over the phone and collected it from reception.

I phoned local midwives as needed to submit to work by 25weeks and was able to just go down to women’s centre at local hospital and a midwife completed one and gave me it. I was 22weeks at the time.
