    Do we have to come in between to office during Maternity leave or we can take the leave for 6 months straight?

    I want to know how the maternity leave works. Do we have to come in between 2 months or so for a day to office in order to check everything is going fine or so? or we can take 6 months straight leave? Can you please give me details about this? What should I do? take continuous 6 months leave?

    Hi,

    I would like to let you know that if during the pregnancy if any women want to take continuous leaves, then there are some rules regarding the same to avail which each and every company follows. In private companies maternity leaves are of 3 months which are payable. Some private companies also provides 1 month special maternity leaves to their women employee in medical needs, which are also payable. In government sector maternity leaves are of 6 months, for these 6 months employee will the get salary. Although these maternity leaves are allowed to take after 8th month but if in case of medical emergency one can avail early also.
    There is no need to come in between, once you have taken the leaves. You can continuously take it for either 3 months or 6 months as per your company norms in which you are working. To get more details on the same, you can talk to your HR. They are only the right person to whom you can get the exact answers as per the company norms.

    Hi aspirant

    You can certainly avail continuous 6 months of your maternity leave according to the Maternity Benefits Act. The condition for availing such leaves is that you should have completed atleast 180 days in your workplace before availing such leave. And if you fulfill this condition then you can avail 6 months of continuous leave, 3 months before the Expected Date of delivery and 3 months after your delivery.

    These leaves are certainly important for every pregnant women as they require proper rest in order to keep them and their baby healthy. Thus they should not stress themselves much. Plus their diet should be very good and should take extra calories during pregnancy to provide the nourishment to their child as well.But of course if you want to keep a check on your work then its good and wishful thinking on your part. But you do not need necessarily go to your office for that and can enquire on the phone regarding that. The rules are the same for every company.

    Take care of your health . Good luck. Have a safe delivery
