Laid off and pregnant while on notice

Woman is laid off, she is now serving her 3 month notice by her employed and has 1 month left in it. Assume last day is Feb 29.

She finds out that she is pregnant, barely 2 weeks. So she got pregnant WHILE on notice and after she was fired but not before notice is over.

The law says notice is suspended until 16 weeks after birth. But how is this in practice working if we assume birth in September?

a) September + 16 weeks + 1 month left: employee automatically is terminated in January 2021.

b) September + 16 weeks + brand new notice period of 3 months must be served by employer or the old one still counting?

Is the whole suspension thing automated or the minute you tell them you are pregnant, even if serving notice, then the whole thing is null and void and they must fire you again?

Thanks for all the help
