Not all employers grant additional leave though, and with expenses shooting up after having a baby, the Indian government's plan to increase maternity benefits from 12 to 26 weeks of paid leave, is being welcomed by mothers and women's rights groups in the country.

It will need parliamentary approval, but India's women and child development minister has said the government is committed to making the amendment to the maternity benefits law as soon as possible. 

Maternity leave entitlements around the world:-

India: 12 weeks at full pay (currently)

UK: 39 weeks of paid leave, 90% of pay for first six weeks

China: 14 weeks, paid at least the average wage at the company

US: 12 weeks, employers not obliged to pay anything
