How Long May A Woman Be Off Work For Pregnancy?

If more than four months of leave is provided for other types of temporary disabilities, the same leave must me made available to women who are disabled due to pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition. Pregnancy leave is required only when a woman is actually disabled. This includes time off needed for prenatal care, severe morning sickness, doctor­ordered bed rest, childbirth, recovery from childbirth, and related medical conditions.
