  1. Mutterschutz how it works

    Hi All,   I am probably asking something already addressed in this forum.   By law the Mutterschutz is from 6 weeks before delivery to 8 weeks after, which means a total of 14 weeks.  Since I am currently working from home and doing fine, I was considering shortening to 3 weeks the leave before giving birth. But before asking my employer, my main question is: can I then add these 3 weeks AFTER delivery (and then have 11 full paid weeks instead of 8)? Is this possible by law and/or is a "private arrangement" with the employer?   thank you very m,uch in advance for any clarification!
