ML starting on the day of delivery. You can try asking for HL frm ur gynae prior to EDD, esp if u hve some kind of health condition. If ure with private hospital, ure in luck cz gynaes wld be more flexible in giving HL compared to gov hosp. I was with Parkway and got 4 wks HL due to asthma.

I start my ML on the day i give birth. You will need to speak to your employer for this arrangement if not your ML will start 1 month before your EDD by default according to MOM. Can try asking your gynae for HL before you give birth. Dont waste your ml 🤭
