I was hoping for a bit of advice/reassurance. DH and I worked out that for personal reasons early 2017 would be a good time to start a family. But since then, ive accepted a new job so will only have worked in my new job a year when the baby arrives (assuming all goes well. Fingers crossed). I know it'll be touch and go whether I get occupational pay or SMP but that's ok because we're fortunate enough for it not to matter. My question is whether it will create ill feeling at work if I go off on maternity after a year. Will people think that makes me less committed etc? I know it shouldn't make a difference but I can't help worrying.
