Can anyone help? I know I'm supposed to have handed in a Maternity Certificate to my employers by now (I'm 26 weeks) but no one has given me one and I can't seem to find out where it comes from. Any ideas??

You get it from your midwife.

You're supposed to get it from your midwife - HTH. Also it doesn't matter, usually, if its a tiny bit late, as long as your employers know.

Ask your midwife - she should give it to you, if I remember correctly from my last pregnancy.

YOur midwife will give you this if you ask her.

Kookie - you get this from your midwife - although I didn't get mine till 30 weeks. As long as you have informed your employers in writing there should be no problem.

Or you can get it from your Doctors, you are 26 weeks which is the minimum you need to be to get it so you should be fine!

yes and if you have a partner who is applying for the SPP(Paternity Leave)paid by the governmant then that form has to be handed in to the employers by week 25 of the partners pregnancy......mad isn't it or is it so that most men can't receive it???
there is a SPP form on the maternity alliance website that you can download and print.
