How do I get sick leave from work while pregnant?

You have to talk to your employer if you get ill during your pregnancy.

If you are pregnant and you get ill with a pregnancy related condition, you employer has to contact Udbetaling Danmark and not the department for sickness benefits of the City of Copenhagen. It is Udbetaling Danmark that pays out benefits if you are signed off sick with a pregnancy related condition. 

You can get money from Udbetaling Danmark if you are not entitled to pay during illness. Whether you are entitled to this, depends on your terms of employment.

It is also Udbetaling Danmark that pays out maternity maintenance.

You can always talk to your trade union about your rights and terms of employment during illness and during pregnancy.
