Also, anyone used Aflac for short term disability? I'm thinking of one of their policies to cover my maternity leave.

I don't personally know anything about maternity costs but my friend who is self-employed used Combined Insurance (VERY similar to AFLAC) and had 6 weeks of maternity leave covered.

I don't know the specifics or the cost but you can google Combined and maybe it will tell you.

I do use Combined as a supplemental insurance for accidents and/or sickness.
