Usually women will receive 6 weeks of disability after a vaginal birth and 6-8 weeks following a cesarean section delivery. Please obtain the necessary forms form your employer's human resources department. As a general rule, they should not be completed in advance of your delivery. Please fill out the "claimant information"- Part A and sign the form before giving it to our office. You may download and print a copy of the DB-450 form.
If your employer has over 50 full-time employees, you may also want to inquire about FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act).
