I forgot to say about the babycentre email's mammalinz, if you've only just signed up, once they have your due date you'll get the email on the day that you start the next gestational week, i.e. mine come on Sundays. Otherwise I'm not sure what the issue is!
Lilwish I was just reading up on the paid parental leave/baby bonus, perhaps as a teacher they wouldn't class school holidays as being 'out of work'. I'd give them a call, I think working for Education QLD will stand you in very good stead! The $75,000 joint income is for the 6 month period following the birth, so if you take at least 6 months off you won't be earning and if your partner doesn't earn over $75K in 6 months then you're all good. That's how I've read it anyway!
