Maternity leave is a benefit some companies give to women who have just had a baby. It is time off so that they can spend time with the baby and recover from childbirth. Some companies are also giving men Paternity leave so that they too can spend time with their newborns and help the mother after the birth.

It's the time a woman takes off work to prepare for & to give birth to a child. She will often have time off after the birth to nurture & care for the baby in the first few months. Not all jobs pay maternity leave. Some have to take time off without pay or use their holiday time then. If you get paid maternity leave then they hold your position for you to come back to after the time off.

Maternity leave, also known as family leave, may not be exactly what you think (and hope) it is. Technically, it is the time a mother takes off from work at the birth (or adoption) of a child. But many women mistakenly assume that maternity leave is paid in full, or paid for several months, or both. In most cases, it’s not, though some companies offer new parents some paid time off in various ways.

So what about all those new moms who got paid to stay home for six or more weeks? They likely received short-term disability (STD) benefits, and chances are you can too.

What is STD? Although motherhood is not a disability per se (though there will be plenty of days when it feels like it is), short-term disability insurance — which many employers and unions pay for and offer as an automatic benefit to their employees — will generally pay between 50 and 100 percent of your salary for a certain number of weeks after you give birth. Technically, STD is meant to cover your salary, or a portion of your salary, during the time you’re unable to do your job as a result of illness, injury, or childbirth.

It is when women goes onto leave ( a kind of long leave ) during last time of pregnancy and after having a baby. Good firms/companies offer it.
