In my 30th week of pregnancy I was diagnosed with cancer. I then gave my employer a sick note from my consultant which had no end date on it. My baby was delivered at 34 weeks gestation and my maternity leave automatically started then. I then had an operation to remove the cancer which was classed as major surgery (radical hysterectomy) and then six weeks after that I had four weeks' worth of radiotherapy and also chemotherapy. I am wondering if I am entitled to claim this sick time at the end of my maternity leave?
