Make sure you ladies all fill this form out at least 6 wks before you head on your maternity leave. Just one question for those of you in the know....I filled my form out and sent it off and received notification that they received it. But I had my due date set as 20th September 2009 which they had on the form. But they said my date to start the official maternity leave is 20th Sept too. I thought you had to go at least 2 wks before your due date which is also what my employer had down to show when i finish. Any ideas?

It's possibly just a clerical error as those fields are filled in by whatever they enter on your records up there. As far as I remember, there's a line in the letter saying if any of the details are wrong then to ring them to correct it. You legally need to start two weeks prior to the last day of the week that you are due. You can start earlier than this however.
