Hi. I've been working 2.5 days per week at my job since I started in August. I am due to give birth in August 2012. I have severe morning sickness (HG) and have been hospitalized a few times. The sickness affects my ability to do my job well and my hours are down to 1.5 days per week. I want to be eligible for paid maternity leave at at least the rate of two days per week or it won't be worth it. If I get a medical certificate from my doctor saying I'm unfit to work my usual amount of hours, would centrelink take this into account when calculating the maternity leave? I will get around to calling centrelink soon but if anyone knows about this I'd be interested. Thank you.
