Maternity leave

Hey! How long are yall planning to take for maternity leave? 

Re: Maternity leave

  • We get 16 weeks, so I’ll do that and probably add on 1 week of vacation time
  • I'm self employed, so we've just saved up money for my time off. I'll take whatever time I can afford. I plan for about 4 months totally off, then returning part time for a few more months.

    We get only 3 months, so I'm taking all three months. I'm just worried about wasting maternity leave hanging around at home if the baby's late.

    We just get whatever sick time and vacation time we have built up. I'm planning to take off June-Oct and then work 2 days a week til the end of November. Then go back full time.
  • All of it, lol.  All of June through Mid-November. I can't wait for leave. Sitting/standing for prolonged periods at work is KILLING me. 
  • 15 weeks, 16 weeks if I can swing a week of vacation time

  • I only get sick and vacation time saved up as well so I’m hoping everything goes well so I can go back to work and not use it all :( pretty disappointing imo
  • I’m due the week after school gets out, so I’ll have 9ish weeks of summer. I plan to take 6+ more (unpaid).

  • We get 12 weeks paid maternity, 3 weeks paid child bonding, and an additional 9 weeks unpaid. Unfortunately I can't afford the unpaid time. With DD1 I could, so I took 6 months off, but 15-16 weeks still isn't bad. My sister was only allowed 6 weeks so I am appreciative

  • I work for a school - kids get out June 14 and my last day is the 25th! I’m due the 27th. I will get my my normal “summer” time off of 4 weeks and then my maternity time will start when I would normally go back which is July 29. I can take 60 days which is non paid so I think that sets me at mid October. 
  • As of now, maternity leave will begin June 16th.....with my last work day June 13th so I am looking at 6 more weeks!

  • maternity leave for me doesn't start until the day baby is born. I'll get 16 weeks paid leave. If my ob decides I have to go out prior to baby coming, that would be short term disability which would be paid. Right now my plan is to work until the Friday before Monday's c-section.

  • Wow some of you are very lucky with the paid leave u get. I only get 6 weeks paid and not even at 100%. I'm taking the 6 weeks and then get 3 weeks of work from home.
  • Canadian here so I have a ton of time available to me. My last day at work is the 7th and then I'm on vacation until the 15th. My actual leave will start after that. I get 15 weeks of maternity followed by 35 weeks of parental leave. There's been some changes to the law since I have my last baby and we could actually extend that time to 61 weeks but your payment amount is the same overall, just stretched into smaller payments and I don't think that's doable for us.

  • I will be out starting next week until early October. My LO is fully engaged in my pelvis so I can't really walk well or work anymore so I am pushing through this last week and then I'm done
