Maternity leave in Poland

Yesterday I got surprised when one lady from our office announced that she is going to maternity leave. Why did I get surprised? well, because I had not noticed anybody in the office who looks like being pregnant. I found out that in Poland you can start maternity leave already after being pregnant one month. You do not get actually an official maternity leave but doctor writes you a sick leave until you give birth. In Poland it is normal that while being pregnant you get a sick leave. In Finland you have to work and you get the maternity leave just few months before giving birth.

I found out also that abortion is illegal in Poland. Though I have been told that there are some illegal clinics where you can get the job done.
