Pregnancy and Motherhood Leave

Viimati uuendatud: 23.02.2017


A woman is entitled to 140 calendar days of pregnancy and motherhood leave. This can be used starting from the 70th calendar day prior to the presumed labour deadline. If the woman starts to use the pregnancy and motherhood leave less than 30 calendar days before the presumed deadline, the vacation shall be decreased by this time.

The Estonian Health Insurance Fund pays a motherhood benefit to the mother for the pregnancy and motherhood leave. The benefit amount is 100% of the employee’s medium remuneration per each calendar day, calculated based on the year preceding the year when the woman goes on the leave. The benefit is paid out all at once.
