Calculate maternity leave
*A "premature birth" in this sense is when the birth weight is below 2,500g and/or it is medically certified that signs of maturity are not yet (fully) developed.

How our maternity leave calculator works

First, enter the expected date of delivery in the field provided. You can then directly calculate when maternity leave will begin at the latest.


Does the actual date of birth of your child differ from the calculated date? Then this will affect the calculation of your maternity leave. To determine your maternity leave period in this case, enter the actual date of birth next to the calculated date.


Of course, our maternity leave calculator also calculates the extended maternity leave periods after multiple births, after the delivery of premature babies or if your child was born with a disability. For this purpose, tick the corresponding box.
