Hi. I wonder if anybody could advise...generally. I'm currently working to the end of a fixed term contract. Verbally I have been offered, and accepted, another year (Sept 2011-12). I have this weekend discovered the exciting news that I am pregnant (V. early days). The baby, all being well, is due in January(ish)...how does this work if I am only employed until August 31st 2012? Will I have to take unpaid maternity as not guarenteed I can go back for the required 3 month period after? Many thanks for any advice.
