Are you pregnant and have realized that you are one of those women with zero access to any form of paid maternity leave? You know that your employer will not offer you anything when you go away to deliver your baby. If you know this then you will have to begin planning for the financial situation you are definitely going to face during your maternity leave.
With limited time to plan here are a few survival tips that you should consider:-
1. Know your rights.
You could begin by educating yourself on your maternity leave rights. Start researching on your company's maternity leave policies and your state's laws and what they say about maternity leave and companies. If you happen to be lucky and work in a state that requires parents to be given a paid leave, then you will definitely get access to some funding through the short term disability leave programs.
