I'm really lucky in that I get 6 months full pay, the remaining 3 months at the smp rate then the 3 months unpaid if I choose to take it.

That's a great maternity policy. I also work in the public sector (local government) but I worked in the civil service before and they had an amazing scheme of 6 months full pay and 3 months half pay. If you'd been with them for 5 years or more it was 12 months full pay! Hated the job tho so didn't think it was worth me staying on!!

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but from what I can tell in the US our jobs are protected and parents can get up to twelve weeks off for maternity leave but pay is not ensured neither is the possible loss of job unless you have been working at the company you are employed with for a year. Companies can make different policies and several states have different policies as well.

I'm glad to read on here that so many people are in good positions maternity leave wise.
