When's everyone going to begin maternity leave?

I'm in the process of deciding when to start mine, thinking of taking 2 weeks annual leave at 36ish weeks and beginning my maternity leave at 38ish weeks which is what I did last time.

I work as a UK midwife which is hard & stressful at times but only do 25 hours a week as my son is only 2, so I hope to be ok staying on that late. When are you going to take your mat leave and what kind of job do you do?
