I have just gone to hand in my MatB1 and realised it's in my married name, but I use my maiden name for work and intend to continue to do so.
Any idea whether it'll cause me a problem? Anyone have issues with using two names? Thanks :)

I still use my maiden name at work. I didn't have any problems with the maternity leave forms, etc but think I may have filled them in using my maiden name. In fact, my bank account is still in my maiden name as well as I've been too lazy to do anything about changing it. I keep meaning to do something as my main forms of ID are all in my married name but haven't. I'm sure I'm not the only person who does it. It just felt weird to suddenly start calling myself something else having been one name for more than 30 years.

I'm sure they say it's a problem you could get a copy of your marriage certificate and passport etc for proof of identity.

Oh thanks Cedar. It's not been a problem until now but the midwife filled in the form and used the name she has for me and it didn't occur to me. I'm in the same boat as you and I've been working for more than 20 years and didn't want to lose that continuity. :)
