Yes, it probably should. However, in this case the chances that she's not medically cleared to fly are very low.

Women aren't cleared to fly that close to the due date. You generally can't fly after 36 weeks and some airlines won't let you after 28.

Yes, though through her company it's probably unpaid and flight attendants make diddly squat. Women don't work up to birth because they want to, they have to.

I am currently pregnant and my doctor told me it's standard practice to not fly past 34 weeks pregnant (so 6 weeks before you are due). Of course this could change based on the woman and her health. Keep in mind some women get a lot larger with their pregnancies earlier on so you can't always judge how far along someone is. Also, you are actually pregnant for about 10 months, not 9... FYI

Should maternity (and paternity leave for that matter) extend to time before leading up to birth?

Usually it's 2 weeks before your due date

Maybe she's just big boneded

This is making me anxious since I am also in the process of H1B transfer - I just want them to tell me if I passed the check or not before I resign. - Anyone have an experience with a spotty background check and how fast/tedious it was. For ref for both my last jobs (in US) it was seamless.
