Hi, Please can someone offer some advice/clarification. I'm no spring chicken and at 31 realise my clock is ticking. My husband and i have decided we would like to try for a child I however have PCOS so will 'need some help' if I can get pregnant at all. I started a new job in September and have quickly realised it is not the position for me and have since resigned and been appointed to a new position which is in a different LA due to start in January. I have been teaching for 8 years but will I qualify for maternity pay at my new school or do I have to have been working there for a certain amount of time before this will be paid? My partners job is much less paid so I'm wondering if we could/should actually afford to bring a child into this world and give him/her the best start in life. Thank you in advance for any advice provided.
