I am 15 weeks pregnant and work a full time job. I also have a second teaching job that is only three hours one night a week. I would like to take full maternity from my full time job (Statutory Maternity Pay) but I would also like to keep doing my three hours for one evening a week as I feel I could manage this. Would this influence my maternity pay from my full time job?

It is also worth noting that you are not entitled to return to any work during the two-week period following childbirth. This is known as your compulsory maternity leave.
