    This is only available through FMLA. There is not formal Maternity or Paternity and Maternity is not covered under Short Term Disability - FMLA.

    You get 6 weeks for regular delivery and 8 weeks for c-section. You can however use your vacation to stay out longer, or take an unpaid leave of absence. This is normal for our society in general so it's ok for Americans but as a mother of 5, I look to other countries that offer much more time off for both parents. I will say however, that I was pregnant when I started and had my daughter less that a year in, which did not qualify me for FMLA, I could have been fired based on that but I was able to take my 8 weeks off, and received short term disability and used vacation time as well.
