You should report sickness absence in line with the normal sickness absence notification procedure.

However, if your sickness absence is due to a pregnancy-related illness, within four weeks of Expected Week of Childbirth (EWC), then maternity leave and payments (if eligible) will start automatically after the first day of absence.
