How Much Time Can I Take Off if I'm Pregnant in California

Pregnant employees may take up to four months of leave during the time that they are actually disabled by pregnancy or a pregnancy-related condition.

This time may be taken before or after the birth of the child and includes time off for severe morning sickness, medically necessary bed rest, childbirth, and recovery from childbirth and any pregnancy-related complications.

The exact amount of time off allowed for pregnancy disability leave depends on each employee’s situation. However, employees with “normal” pregnancies and deliveries are generally considered to be disabled for up to four weeks prior to giving birth and up to six weeks after giving birth.

This is also the period of time for which California’s State Disability Insurance (SDI) program will typically pay disability benefits to pregnant employees.
