  • I was approved for initial H1B. When the start date came (Oct 2011) I did not start due to maternity leave.

    If you maxed out your time in the first H-1B you would have to wait until the earliest start date of October 1, 2013. If not, you may be able to apply now. Consult with an immigration attorney. Best of luck.
