American here is who is loving the maternity leave in Denmark! I stopped working at 37 weeks for my first child, and then took 8 months off wilth 5 months being full pay and 3 at a minimum wage amount. I was begging to go back to work after 8 months!
Now I am pregnant with twins and stopped working at 24 weeks, and now am on disability which is still full pay. They are due January 5th.
The US and other countries could learn a lot about how to setup a better work/life balance like they have in Europe.
