mazzoffee:  In the US genearlly maternity leave is qualifiable for short-term disability.

biologistmommy:  Some states are required to offer short-term disability… Also, you should check the HR website for the university, they  usually have a seperate set of info for research foundation positions, at least that’s how it is for my DH’s work.

biologistmommy:  I didn’t have any maternity leave either. I was off for about 7 weeks with my daughter. Thankfully we could fall back on sone taxes during that time.

biologistmommy:  I’m an adjunct professor.  I don’t get any maternity leave either, and I will have to take an entire quarter off since I can’t just leave part way through a term.  I’m just hoping the timing works out when I do get pregnant.
