Hello everyone, I have recently applied for Maternity Allowance as I am self-employed. I own a small e-commerce, specialized in fashion. As I am preparing to have my second child, I was having some doubts as to what are my entitlements and duties during myself being on Maternity. I know I am entitled to Keep-in-touch days, up to 10. However, I would have to send some parcels out to costumers who buy from my online website and would have to organize the photo shooting for our upcoming collections (due in October) and then upload of the pics on the website. Obviously parcels have to be sent out daily, I cannot gather them and spread them through 10 KIT Days. Should I ask my partner to step in and help? If so, do I have to employ him part-time? Is there anyone else in the same position? Any suggestions? Thank you to everyone who will take some time to help me.
