From what I understand, short term disability insurance would cover maternity leave.

@guitargirl:  I am a teacher and I know that my disability insurance covers pregnancy. I think it is through American Fidelity?

Short-term disability will usually cover you for 6 weeks if you have a vaginal delivery, and a little longer if you have a c-section.  Many short-term disability plans only pay out a fraction of your normal pay though.  Are you trying to purchase your own private disability insurance?  If you’re already pregnant, then pregnancy might count as a pre-existing condition, and they could turn you down.  If you’re not pregnant yet, you should apply ASAP before you get pregnant.
