What is pathological pregnancy leave?

In France, your doctor may prescribe pregnancy leave before or after your maternity leave, in some cases.

  • If your health condition requires you to stop working earlier than expected, you will be able to take an additional 2 weeks of leave before the start of your maternity leave.
  • The risk of miscarriage, gestational diabetes, high blood pressure, or other medical reasons related to your pregnancy require a total rest period.

If you've had a difficult birth or post-partum depression, your doctor may prescribe post-natal medical leave. You will receive different daily benefits in both cases.
