Here is what I was told. You can do SDI for 6 or 8 (based on normal or C section), then 6 weeks of PFL. After SDI you can take CFRA which gives you 12 weeks - out of this 6 weeks are paid through PFL and the next 6 weeks are unpaid. So that makes it a total of 18 weeks you can take off. Maybe someone on this forum can confirm I have it right?
My understanding is the same a PPs.
I am due 11/15.
I am taking 4 weeks SDI starting 10/18 (OB is taking me out early because of my commute)
Then 6-8 after delivery
Then 6 PPL
Then the remainder of my unpaid FMLA (it is not concurrent with PPL)
My return to work date isn't until 3/20. Crazy!
