How do I get more maternity leave pay for my pregnancy?
My job offers short term disability through metlife up to 6 weeks at 66 2/3% of paycheck. Unfortunately that is not enough pay for me, do I have any other options? Could I go out and get another policy that would cover me? If so, what company should I go with?

If you're already pregnant then you have no other options - policies such as AFLAC require that you have the maternity rider in effect for 10 months PRIOR to getting pregnant Be happy you get what you do - most go without any pay

You won't be able to get coverage for your existing pregnancy. If you live in a state with mandated short term disability coverage that policy will pay in addition to your MetLife policy. Those states are: CA, HI, NJ, NY, and RI.
