So STD is 2 weeks before due date and then 6-8 weeks after baby arrives. So if your baby is born 37+6 you don’t get any of that two week time, but if your baby is 41+6 you would get almost 4 weeks of pregnancy std. Once baby is born that time is reset and then it is 6 or 8 weeks depending on type of birth. If you are on STD during a holiday you lose out on that holiday time (aka you can’t use your Memorial Day hours later). After STD you’ll want to burn all your vacation time because you reaccumulate vacation while on maternity leave. During maternity leave/vacation you can also use your holiday hours if they overlap. So generally it goes vacation -> maternity -> newly accumulated vacation time Source: had 2 children while working at PwC, including a baby May 2020

Based on what I know, it’s 6 weeks STD (8 weeks if c section) + 8 weeks of paid parental leave. You can take vacation on top of that and then move on to unpaid leave.

The 2 weeks before delivery is use it or lose it (I delivered early so wasn’t able to take advantage of that). I strongly advice you to take it. You can’t take vacation before STD, STD comes first. However, you can take vacation before parental leave (most people do this if they are about to max out). Max amount of time you can take is 6 months (STD+parental+vacay+unpaid)
