Hi everyone,

I hope some of you can maybe help me. I am thinking about getting pregnant. My PhD scholarship has quite a good maternity leave policy. Unfortunately it will end on the 1st of December (I know it is not the best timing. I am quite late). I wondered if maternity leave only kicks in when a baby is born or if starts earlier (like a month before the due date). It seems to be such a tricky decision when to try to have a baby as most postdoc positions are short term. I have only recently started to look into it. I can see that getting pregnant any time past April would be a really bad idea so I would like to know till when it is safe to try and when I should stop (applying for jobs being six months pregnant would probably be very difficult). And advice will be very welcome. Thanks!
