My partner and I are planning to start trying to fall pregnant soon and I was wondering about Tony Abbott's paid parental leave scheme that is meant to be starting 1/7/2015. I am wondering if you were to have a baby a couple of months before it comes in, where you would stand with your paid leave and if you could get it? I saw the the current centrelink leave you can apply for within the baby's first year. Does anyone know how it might work with the change over? Obviously I don't really want to put off getting pregnant (if we happen to be lucky enough to fall pregnant on the first try with IUI!) but it would be a big shame to miss out on this much money!!
keen to hear your thoughts.
