i think so. i think they should have some time off at least a couple week prior to the due date. no one wants a delivery at work. also time with the newborn in its first few weeks of live is pretty important. especially if breast feeding, which i also recommend. there is no substitute for it.
Yes. Here we have one year of maternity leave and I think it's perfect. I can't imagine having gone back to work at 4-6 weeks postpartum like many women do in the US.
I went back at 13wks as we only get 14wks paid (and was off a week b4 bubs was born) - and have large mortgage etc. our jobs are 'held' for a yr for us to return to but unpaid after 14wks. I couldn't afford not to go back. A yr would hv been awesome
Absolutely.......I think if you were capable of having children, this would not even be in question.

Do you think providing better maternity leave for women in the work place is beneficial?Why or why not, and what impact will it have on women being more committed to staying with their jobs/careers?

Why do so many countries other than USA have wonderful maternity leave?A large amount of countries take care of mothers after giving birth yet here in USA there is no paid leave unless offered by employers, which is not mandatory. So why is America lacking in this area?
