I think it depends on your needs. Also look into your benefits. Baby won't necessarily come by your due date. It could be early, on time or late, unless you have a scheduled c-section or induction. My first was 10 days late by induction, and then I chose to be induced at 39 weeks with my second. I have only worked part time jobs right before having my kids, so I would give my notice before my due date. My husbands insurance for paternity leave did not cover any dates before baby's actual birth date. He took the day off prior to my induction, and it was unpaid.
