This entire post makes me sad. The US is so far behind in maternity leave.



Yup. It's awful.

As of now, 12 weeks FMLA. I would love to be home for at least 6 months though

2 weeks vaca
1 week sick (if I don’t use any by the end of September)
5 weeks State STD
4 weeks with zilch

I offered to work p/t from home the last 4 weeks and was shot down (we don’t work from home I was told)

My DD is 9/25, I really don’t want to come back until the beginning of the new year. How have you gone about extending your leave or do you arrange for it ahead of time?

I have to let HR know my anticipated date of return and which accruals to charge while I'm on leave. If I want to extend it further, I need approval.

Re: How long do you plan on going on maternity leave for?

I had just started a new job in April and had DD in June.
I had ZERO time off accrued.
They advanced me one week - paid time off- that i Had to work to pay back when I returned.

I only stayed out 8 weeks because I couldn't afford any more time off unpaid.

I posted a link the other day about how the US is only ONE of 2 nations in the WORLD that does not have mandatory paid time off for new moms.

It's truly disgusting.

UGH, i agree.

it's so sad and frustrating and despicable of our country. it also angers me that i have to use my sick days at work for the first 6 weeks (which takes away from my total accrued at the end of retirement, and that any over the 6 weeks comes off of seniority. something that men will never have to do!

I agree completely how awful our country is when it comes to maternity leave. Truly sad.

With my first, I was only offered 6wks without pay. Pathetic. I decided to just become a SAHM instead. Now I work from home (have a home daycare) so I obviously won't get paid time off. Instead I will use these months beforehand to save as much as I can and hopefully get at least the 6wks before I return to full time working stay at home mom. lol.

baby will come in late june but won't go back until thanksgiving-i'm a teacher so i'll get summer, and then the FMLA 12 weeks after. it's fortunate timing. baby will be about 5 months old.
