Geez, that's not a bad idea. But maybe it should just be 2 weeks paid household help for pregnancies involving stay at home moms, and 4 weeks if it is a c-section. And if you work, it should be maternity leave and 2 weeks household help, again 4 if you have a c-section.
The only exception to being eligible would be if the dad is a stay at home and therefore she is not responsible for the daily household tasks to begin with. But, if a c-section is involved, maybe a nurse being available to come by daily for a couple hours and help out with the baby or something.
Ahh... that perfect world we are still in search of!

I guess we didn't have that benefit back in the dinosaur days though they did keep me in the hospital a few days longer after my emergency c-section. At least I had the help of my mother-i-law for a week. You're right, Fisher's Mom, they will come when they are good and ready :)

I only had 1 c-section, the last one. I had them tie my tubes as long as they were in there. They also thought I had to have my appendix taken out at the same time (I had horrible pain in my side 3 weeks before lego girl was due and couldnt walk) but I didn't.
I'm still on maternity leave!!!! :) Haven't worked (ok full time) since before she was born.
