Hi all
Long time lurker and first time poster. I know three children isn't really a large family but there's no medium sized family topic area so please bear with me smile
We currently have two children, 2.11 and 1yr6 months. I'd love to have three and ideally get pregnant soon. However, one of my many concerns would be how my employer would feel about a third maternity leave so close to my last two. I'm a teacher and have worked for same employer for 7 years. I know they couldn't Fire me for it, but I'm worried they'd find some way of getting rid of me! Or that I wouldnt be entitled to any maternity pay . Or am I just being ridiculous?! Anyone any experience of multiple mat leaves at same job?

Two of my colleagues have had 3 children fairly close together with no problems. Have the family you want.
