    Excellent. Having a child and taking the time to bond is the best benefit in the world.

    Maternity leave is the minimum...not competitive with local companies.

    Stanford University "maternity policy", is just what the state of California mandates. Then the "policy" is, you get to use your earned vacation time to top off the state rate of 60% pay.

    Stanford only offers the minimum required by FMLA and the state of California. Postpartum women get 6 or 8 weeks disability paid at 60%. The remainder can be supplemented with any leave time available. Staff (male or female) can take an additional 12 weeks leave. The first 6 are paid at 60% per California's parental leave policy. Again, this can be supplemented but only with vacation time and only after a 2 week waiting period which is paid from your vacation time (if you have it). The remainder of the 12 weeks are entirely unpaid. They do not go beyond the minimum required for their staff, meanwhile faculty get 3 months fully paid.
