Am planning to switch jobs. While I just started to look out , I also plan to start a family soon. While I cannot predict the timeline for either , if for any reason I move to a new job and need to take maternity leave just after months into the company will I even be eligible? What is the general policy for companies in the Bay Area - LinkedIn , google , Facebook etc or are there any companies which are good with policies for new moms.

Don't plan your career around maternity leave. It can take months or years for many to successfully get pregnant. You could be in limbo for a long time wishing you'd made a move sooner.
