OK, US moms, I am from Europe and I have heard that the social system in the US is not really child friendly. More particularly that after giving birth, you get 1 or 2 months when you can stay home with your newborn. After that you have to go back to work as the state is not paying anymore. How much truth is in that. How much do you get paid from the state and for how long, after giving birth. Can you live on it if only hubby is working and you are getting "Child care money" as it is called here?
