Facebook’s Pre-Birth policy

Hi everyone, can someone please share Facebook’s pre-birth policy? I know it is four months post delivery. But I’m not sure what it is before the birth.

Can you leverage any of the unlimited sick days off?
Are there in California programs that kick in?

      What do you mean by that? Isn’t it discrimination do hold an offer based on a pregnancy?

    • You have to be born before they can hire you.

    If you’re a woman, you the month before your due date off as well as your 4 months. So 5 months total. Full pay.

      This is correct, but it’s a california thing, unsure about the rest of the country (assuming US)

    If you have to go out early with pregnancy complications, most likely you will go on state disability. It’s about 60% of your wages but there is a max. Most likely FB would offer some additional financial support. Wishing you the best in health. :)
