New fathers get four weeks, and together the parents get an additional 156 weeks to share.
For the shared portion, the parents can decide whether to have it paid out at 100% for the first 52 weeks (until the child is turns 1) or 70% for the first 104 weeks (until the child is 2 years old). The remaining weeks are unpaid.
Fathers in Estonia are given two weeks of paid time off to promote extra bonding with their child. They can also choose to take some of the time off during the final two months before the expected delivery date.
After maternity leave ends, parents get an additional 435 days off to share, with compensation calculated at the average of their two earnings.
