I just found out that even though I can get up to 12 weeks of short term disability at 100% pay, I really get only 6 weeks after a "natural" (their word not mine) birth and 8 weeks after a C- Section to recover and bond with baby. Any additional time-off would have to be deemed medically necessary. I find this time frame to be crazy especially being a first time mom. It's like these rules are forcing you to quit your job.
What are your benefits for child birth and are you outraged right now?
