I stay at home, so all I can tell you about is what it was like when I worked during my first pregnancy.

I was given 8 weeks unpaid leave from teaching. I was able to use short term disability to pay 60% of my salary for a couple of those weeks, but first I had to use all my sick time up. Then, I was allowed to take another 4 weeks unpaid leave for a maximum or 12 weeks, but I never did.

My husband can use his sick time as parental leave. This time, he will take 2 weeks off and then possibly work half days for another week using his vacation time. There is no built in parental leave for him, but he can take up to 12 week unpaid leave if justified. We can't afford that though.
Wife to sweet husband Jeff and mother to 2 beautiful girls: Emily (2) and Jocelyn (1).
