I just wondering your benfits, is it paid, un paid? Does your health insureance is payed for?
I'm a teacher, and our maternity leave is taken out of our sick days. A typical vaginal delivery is 6 weeks paid, and a c-section is 8 weeks. My doctor gave me an extra two weeks because even though I had a vaginal delivery, I had third degree tearing. One of those extra two weeks was spring break, and teachers don't get paid for that anyway, so it was a moot point.
Then you get the option of going back or taking the rest of the school year off unpaid. I decided to stay home for the rest of the year with my LO. I can't imagine going back just yet!
