The number of women getting paid maternity leave is growing, according to census figures.

A little more than half of mothers who had their first child between 2006 and 2008 received some sort of paid maternity leave.

Many used maternity leave benefits, with some including paid sick or vacation benefits.

In the early 1980s, just over 37% of first-time working moms got some sort of paid leave.
