I am a single mom and work for a very small company. The FMLA act i think covers me getting maternity leave but its unpaid and i cant afford to do that! Someone mentioned to me using my short term disability leave which would allow me 3 months out with 60%of my weekly pay. Am i capable of using this? Do other women use this? Do i have to actually have a disability or can i just get my doctor to write a note?

I do think that you need to have been signed up for the disability insurance prior to being pregnant, and I don't know for how long. That may differ by company and policy. Call and ask.
