I really struggle with this topic. If I was interviewing for a job knowing that I was about to go on a long vacation I would never sign an offer without discussing it with them so when people give the advice not to tell your future employer about your pregnancy until you’re hired I just think it’s starting the relationship without trust and transparency and if I was the employer, you would need to rebuild that trust with me.

I would stay at Pwc until after mat leave. Pwc offers like 16 weeks and some mid size firms only offer 2.

To be honest, I wouldn’t. If you stay at your employer, they they wouldn’t require you to tell them this early. Why should potential employers need to know this early. If you want to know about the company maternity leave, I would reach out to HR and ask after you receive a offer letter(probably still not telling them you are pregnant).
