Ditto. I don't get maternity leave - when I have a kid, I'll have to use what little sick time I have saved up, then vacation time. If I'm lucky, that will equal out to a month and a little bit, and beyond that, if I want to stay home for three months (most child care won't take infants before three months) it'll be unpaid time off.
