I'm sure Frederik or Mary will take Christian to school once in awhile but it's not unusual for a nanny to do so. Other royal children are taken to and picked up by a nanny from school.

I wonder how long Mary's maternity leave will be this time around. Last time it was supposed to last more or less around a year but Mary made a couple appearances a couple months after Christian's birth. I guess this time the leave might be a little longer due to the needs of Christian and the new baby. I know the nanny will be there to help out but nothing can replace a mother's care. :)

I think Princess Mary accomplish her duties wonderfully. And she is a good mother to! This is not usual to find nowadays, but there is exceptions...and she is one of them. Of course, we must not excpect she appears in public some hours before giving birth to her baby! :lol:

Women in Denmark get one year of maternity leave when they give birth, Mary chose not to take the full year. After she had Christian, she started doing duties on a regular basis around February the next year (so, four months later), but she did a few duties in those fours months (the Queen Ingrid memorial, New Year's Kur). I think we can expect the same after she has baby #2, given that she has a good birth and she and the baby are healthy, except I don't think we will see her as much before she finishes her maternity leave. I think we'll see her back at work in September-October :flowers:

I believe every mothe ris glad if someone else is helping out on dropping the kids in the kindergarden. We used to take turns and I was always glad when I was spared and could continue with my work schedule. I believe there is no difference to saying good-bye at the front door or at the door of the kindergarden. That little drive to and from is really nothing to worry about.

Canada is also a year mat leave, with the option of the father taking a portion of it if he chooses (both can't use it at the same time tho)

^that's strange. I don't know how it it arranged here, but I think dads should have equal rights to mums

Is this paid maternity leave? Because as far as I understand in the states you can only take 6 weeks maternity leave, and then only if you have that much time in sick leave and vacation time accumulated. If you only have 4 weeks in vacation and sick time accumulated, you can take the other two weeks but its unpaid. Just wondering.

No this is not necesarilly paid - the lenght of paid maternity leave varies. With some private companies you only get 3 months paid leave - with others you get up to 9 months paid. If you work within the state you get 9 months.

In the US the vacation time and sick time have nothing at all to do with maternity leave. It is against the law for an employer to require a person to take their vacation/sick time for maternity leave.

In the USA a woman is entitled by law to 6 weeks of paid maternity leave, in addition to whatever personal,sick or vacation time she has.

This is not true. FOr both my daughters I had to use sick leave. I also used the Family Medical Leave act which allows you to take time - UNPAID- for pregnancy, maternity leave, taking care of a sick family member, etc. But again, this is UNPAID. If you have supplemental insurance (AFLAC or similar) this will pay you disability but this is only a portion of your salary.

grevinnan 04-09-2007 11:32 AM

You are correct - there is no federally mandated paid maternity leave but there are many states that have their own mandated leaves. California has its own - unpaid but much longer than the fed's.

Empress 04-09-2007 12:51 PM

Ok, well, my mistake then. I guess that I have been lucky enough to live in states where it is illegal to require a woman to use personal, sick and vacation time for maternity leave.

RachelD 04-09-2007 02:17 PM

6 weeks regular maternity leave and 3 months max for Ceasarian births.

yvr girl 04-10-2007 12:18 AM

In Canada, it's 1 year paid leave

It's part of the unemployment insurance program. You don't get your full salary though.

6 months mat leave that can be taken by the mother, and 6 months parental leave that can be taken by either the mother or the father.

This conversation has nothing to do with Mary's current events so let's move on...

Thanks,

Mary looked lovely at the easter service she has developed a lovely bump. I do miss her long hair though. I think she looks older without it :wub:
