Going back to work after having a baby
Financial help and childcare costs when you're back in work — plus the rules around breaks for breastfeeding.
Returning to work
You have to give 21 days notice:
before you return to work
if you decide not to go back to work.
Your boss needs to provide a place for you to have a break and breastfeed. Breastfeeding breaks are taken on top of your rest and meal breaks.
Working for Families Tax Credits is money to help look after your baby while you’re working. How much you get depends on what you earn and how many kids you have.
Childcare Subsidy is money for pre-school childcare costs. Usually for up to 9 but it can be for 50 hours a week.
