If you are pregnant, you should inform your employer as early as possible about your pregnancy, this is the only way that maternity leave (time that mothers do not have to work) can be implemented.
In the 34th week of your pregnancy you need to hand in a certificate confirming the expected date of birth and a current pay slip to your health insurance. This information is used to calculate the maternity pay during the maternity leave. If you need help, support or somebody to accompany you, you can receive free and confidential support from family midwives, paediatric nurses and family support specialists until your child is 3 years of age. In this case, just call the "Frühen Hilfen" or contact them online using the contact form https://www.caritasverband-pforzheim.de/n2936213/i3566952.html
