I believe they key term is 'forpermeso'. Sick leave: Forpermeso pro malsano, Annual leave: Ĉiujara forpermeso, I think you mean Maternity leave: Forpermeso pro gravedeco. (otherwise--Forpermeso pro patreco(?))

So basically some kind of specific 'away permission' , don't you just love the way the language is built up?

It's one of the best features. Unfortunately I sometimes find myself trying to do the same in English. I often get that 'tip of the tongue' syndrome, especially when speaking. (Native English speaker here.)
