Be ware the policies of your company

The place where you are working is the place ;about which you need to know each and everything. Research your company policies. Know corporate policies for maternity leave as well as for your doctor’s appointments. Does your company offered paid or un paid leaves?These are all things which you need to research before going on leave.

Disclose it in private discussion.

Do not tell in front of all staff. For this you can invite him at a lunch or dinner. Before inviting him use your all senses to judge the mood of your boss.Because some times the mood makes the bad decisions.
