How Paid Maternity Leave Varies In Other Countries
130 million babies are born every single year.
That equates to 356,164 a day. Break that down even more and that’s 247 babies born per minute.
So, by the time you’ve finished reading this article, nearly 250 babies would have been born…
With every baby being born, there is a mother who has been through 9 months of pregnancy. Once they have given birth they want to spend every minute of their day nurturing their newborn baby.
Unfortunately, not every mother can do this as they have to go back to support their family financially due to some countries not providing paid maternity leave. But, some countries offer great paid maternity leave.
Here are the top 10 countries that provide the best paid maternity leave:
|Economy||Paid or unpaid maternity leave mandated by law?||Minimum length of maternity leave (calendar days)?|
|Bosnia and Herzegovina||Yes||365|
|Iran, Islamic Rep.||Yes||270|
