Maternity pay, why is the amount not always the same each month?


Question:
Maternity pay, why is the amount not always the same each month?
Answer:

Maternity pay is paid on a weekly basis.

So if your maternity leave starts on a Thursday, for example, it would depend on how many Thursdays are in the month to be paid,  as to whether 4 or 5 weeks of maternity pay are processed.
