    It's difficult to decide if benefits are a cause for larger families on the whole. Positive correlations are not necessarily an indicator of causation. I'm sure there are isolated cases of this but overall I would think it was unlikely that women choose to have more children because of benefits. Birth rate doesn't tend to drop when benefits are removed or are lower. It does drop however with better education and access to better contraception.

    The more developed the country is, the lower the birthrate. According to the model of demographic transition, MDC's (more developed countries), such as most countries in Western Europe, have a sustaining population, as they are in stage 4 of the demographic transition. Education and better contraception, like firefly stated, are a huge factor in taking a country to stage four. The US's population is different because of the many immigrants to the US and so the population continues to increase, but for most MDC's, birthrate is low and population growth is minimal and nonexistent. 300px-Stage5.svg.png

    That's pretty much inline with what I've seen. Our population here has grown but that seems to have been immigration and immigrants having more kids that the rest of us (there's a populist party here that is build around condemning just that). When I was in school we were taught that our country had a little over 14 million people. In the 1990s someone had a big hit singing about a country with 15 million people in it. We're now at a little over 16.5 million and we're supposed to level out at 17.8 million.

    That does worry me a bit. The west of this country is very densely populated, I've seen many towns triple in size.

    While we do not have mandated maternity leave, we do have the Family and Medical Leave Act (full details here) which does cover maternity leave as far as job security reasons.

    So while they can fire you for a variety of reasons (or no stated reason at all in some states), and they do not have to give it paid, they also can not technically fire you for being on maternity leave.
