Can An Employee Use Sick Leave To Care For A Pregnant Spouse Or Child?

Yes. An employee may use available paid time off to care for a wife or daughter while she is incapacitated as a result of pregnancy or childbirth. This generally includes some prenatal and postpartum examinations, hospitalization, and during the immediate recovery period after childbirth.
