Most workplaces accommodate benefits for maternity leaves, except for only three countries in the world: the US, Papua New Guinea and Swaziland.

The ‘Work after baby’ infographic by the Human Resources MBA Degree Guide illustrates the difficulty of women trying to return to work after having recently given birth.

Almost 70 per cent of American women have reported that they had to work during the months of pregnancy. The infographic states that employers in the US are not obligated to pay women on maternity leave because it isn’t something mandated by the US government.

Many countries have paid or compensated periods of pregnancy leaves. In Pakistan, women are covered up to 12 weeks. Canada offers accommodated leaves up to 50 weeks at a time. Stats for Mid-Career Pregnancy Infographics Trending: Older & Chilly
