Hi Guys! I have a question about Maternity leave!! Now, I work in a small business and there are no books or benefits about or for maternity leave at my work and i don't get paid for it which is fine but I'm just wondering how long should I take of before I have the baby and after?? I have no idea?? Whats the normal amount of time?? I'm financially stable either way!! So I really don't know!! Now I still have a while to go I'm only 3 months but I was told to plan early!

k; most companies don't offer paid maternity leave; but all companies must adhere to the Dept of Labor's Family & Medical Leave Act; which entitles you to 12 wks of unpaid time off; HOWEVER there is a company size minimum for that to apply; i.e. if your company only has 5 employees the Gov't won't force them to hold your job for you; BUT if they have say 55 employees, they HAVE to hold that job or an equal job open for you: http://www.dol.gov/esa/whd/fmla/
