Women employees in Beijing who give birth to a second child could have their maternity leave extended by up to three months, according to a revised regulation on family planning adopted by the city on Thursday.

The regulation was based on the revised national Law on Population and Family Planning adopted on Jan 1. The law allows all Chinese couples to have two children, putting an end to the national policy that allowed only one child for most couples who live in urban areas.

Their husbands can also have 15 days leave after their babies are born.
