Paid parental leave gives new parents the time and space to prioritize caring for the latest addition to their family without having to worry about how they’ll make ends meet while away from work. But that option isn’t available to everyone. Some employers may only offer unpaid leave, while others may only provide paid leave for birthing parents. Here are examples of some companies with paid maternity leave and other support and resources for new parents built into their employee benefits plans.
