Employment question:

Maternity pay for umbrella contractors - for calculating the 90% average pay for the first 6 weeks of SMP - when/how is the 'average weekly' pay appraised? Is it during the 15 week qualifying period for maternity pay per se or the immediate period before you go on maternity leave? I am paid on a day rate & planning to get pregnant by fertility treatment and I need to know how I can maximise my averge weekly earnings to get the the most out of my first 6 weeks SMP before returning to work (as I cant afford not to work on the 33 week £level SMP drops to after the 6 weeks SMP.) Thanks for any replies.
