Pregnant women are entitled to four consecutive months’ unpaid leave, which commence at any time from four weeks before the expected date of birth or from which a medial practitioner or midwife certifies that leave is necessary for the health of the mother or child. The wages of new and expectant mothers on maternity leave are carried in part by the state in terms of the unemployment Insurance Act.
