Thanks....looks like I am 6 weeks pregnant and bump (all being well) would arrive a month and a half before my ESRC funding end (with another year left for PhD)...not sure whether that will be a problem, hope not.....was thinking of taking maternity in line with the terms anyway so leave month and a half before baby arrives - have two already, so think I might need the break.
hello all, I'm in the same position. I have a 22 month old, which I had in the second year of my PhD and I'm now due a second. So, were you able to get paid leave second time round? I would love to hear peoples experiences. Thanks in advance
I'm in the same position - number two due less than a year before I'm due to hand in (or at least before the money runs out), and I'm afraid they are going to be difficult... anyone else had two lots of paid ESRC maternity leave, with or without having to fight? what happened with you angewilks?
