Question: Is it too early to tell my boss Im pregnant?

Wait Until Your First-Trimester Screen is Complete Each pregnancy is different, they say, and some women, like those who find themselves particularly morning sick, might want to tell work early in the pregnancy because it can be hard to hide bouts of nausea.

Legally, you dont need to tell your employer about your pregnancy or maternity leave until the 15th week before your baby is due (Gov.uk, 2019; Maternity Action, 2019a). But you might want to do it after the first trimester, once youve had your first scan (and start having a more obvious bump).
