FMLA Birth/Care of a Child

I am pregnant and due Dec 20th. My work goes on Holiday shutdown from Dec 22-Jan 1st. I expect to be able to work through Dec 21st and that I will give birth during the shutdown. My hr person told me that my FMLA leave must begin the day I have the baby. Is this true? Based on what I've read it seems that the leave should not start until the first day I would miss work, Jan 2nd.

Also she told me that for the last week of December I would be entitled to Holiday pay, but starting Jan 1 I would not be until I return to work.
