Has any working mom felt they could negotiate maternity leave policy time off before starting at a new company? Feels forward, but they don’t put it into a benefits package unless you ask what the policy is and find out. However it’s treated with PTO, and that’s sometimes negotiable. Part of me is apologetic about doing this and thinks it could be detrimental to how they view me or worse, could rescind my offer, and part of me thinks I should get what I want to feel comfortable and empowered.

When your interviewing and get an offer and start requesting information on benefits, vacation etc. If they don’t provide you with information on maternity leave policies is it weird to ask for it?

My wife and I are having a baby at the end of the month. I recently found out that my company provides PTO for 6 weeks. I had checked the benefits earlier And the leave was unpaid. I had originally planned on taking 2 weeks off, but now my wife expects me to take the full 6. I want to take the full 6, but I feel a weird attachment to my job and I don’t want to put my career in jeopardy. On the other hand it’s my first child, and I want to be an involved father. Am I wrong for feeling this way?
