Do I get maternity allowance if I am off with a pregnancy related sickness?

Yes. You can claim maternity allowance for up to 8 weeks before the expected birth if you have a doctor's certificate. The certificate must be valid until at least four weeks before the due date. Without a doctor's certificate, you are legally entitled to claim maternity allowance for up to 4 weeks before the expected birth.
