I'm just looking for some advice...
The company I work for has a policy where you start maternity leave at 34 weeks unless you have a letter saying you're fit to work beyond this. i'm on annual leave at the moment until next Monday when I'll be over 35 weeks. I only plan on working 1-2 more weeks then finish up anyway.
I was 34 weeks last Friday and went to the antenatal gp who wouldn't give me a letter as he doesn't want to be held liable if anything happens while I'm at work! He also said any agreement needs to be between me and my employer.
I tried calling the midwife this morning to see if they can give me one but they haven't called me back yet.
It's quite hard to get appointments at short notice with either the midwife or the antenantal GP at the hospital I go to. My question is does anyone know if I can just go to my normal GP to get a letter even though I haven't been there since about 17 weeks pregnant. I don't want to waste my time and money going there if they can't give me one!
