Re: At what point does one who is still working taking maternity leave?
When you go on maternity leave is an entirely personal thing. If you want to spend losts of time at home relaxing and getting things ready for the big event then 2/3 weeks before is ok. However if you are still feeling fine and able to cope with work without stress then work longer, that way you get to spend more time at home after junior is born before having to return to work. There is no right and wrong, just whatever suits you best. Good luck!!
