COVID-19 nurse with unpaid maternity leave

48603282_1591451209712570_r.jpegI am looking for help for my sister and her family who have been greatly affected by COVID-19.

She is a wife, mother(expecting their 2nd in September) and nurse and unfortunately her husband lost his job because of COVID. At the time, she was staying at home with her 14 month old son. When her husband lost his job she decided she had to return to work for her family as a registered nurse. The only job she could get quickly was one on a COVID-19 floor.. the risks if she were to get covid while being pregnant are still unknown. She goes into work everyday with the risk of getting sick while helping others recover and trying to keep herself and family safe.

Because she just started work in April, she will not be eligible for any sort of paid maternity leave as their company requires 12 months of work. Any help will get lighten this burden so she can spend at least some time home bonding with her newborn.
