A few years ago when my daughter passed away at childbirth, my employer took the
leave away from me after previously granting it. They reasoned pretty callously that since my daughter had died, I was no longer eligible. It took a lot of fighting, negotiating, and go over peoples' heads to find a decision maker and get some of that time back.
All that to be said, if you have the opportunity to use it, do it. Even if you think it isn't a good fit for you and your family. Live child birth is a precious and miraculous thing.
