Pregnancy leave

In accordance with the family leave reform that entered into force on 1 August 2022, maternity leave will be renamed as  pregnancy leave.

Pregnancy leave (40 days) is continuous and must be started 14–30 days before the due date.

An increased parental allowance (90% of earnings) is paid during pregnancy leave. In other words, the pregnant parent has 40 pregnancy allowance days before the parental leave days.
