    According to the Maternity Benefits Act 1961, you are entitled to 6 weeks of leave before your due date, and 6 weeks after your child's birth. So you can claim at least 12 weeks or three months maternity leave. 

    So, if you have delivered 6 weeks back,  so your employer can ask you back to join back.
