Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

It varies from State to State. I reside in CA so over here, anyone who is a citizen and has been working qualifies.My suggestion, just google Maternity leave in (which ever state you reside)Best of luck!
You should go straight to your human resources person, they are the only ones who can tell you exactly what you're entitled to and what you can do.In my state, most jobs will not pay unless you have been working longer than a year at the job. But just because you may not be eligible for paid leave, does not mean you still couldn't use some unpaid leave. Again, this is all up to your HR person.
This is something you'll need to talk with HR director about.
