    Staying or Going?

    FMLA/Maternity Summer? Question!

    Just randomly thinking, what if somebody gives birth a month before school starts but still wants to go on maternity leave or FMLA? Does it still count even if you don't give birth during the actual school year. Have any of you done this? ...
