California rocks! we're one of the best states in providing maternity benefits! As an employee in California, you get 4 weeks paid leave and 6 weeks (8 if C-section) after childbirth. plus a 6 weeks paid family bonding time after that. All at 60% of your salary (capped at $987/wk). Later on if you feel like to, you can get a 4 months unpaid leave from work, and your employer will need to guarantee your job security when you return. HELL YEAH!
