Pregnancy benefits!?


I am new in the forum. I have read you all for a long time! but i never registered before.

Anyway, i have a question i am hoping someone can answer.

I have been working in CH since mid 2008. I decided to terminate my employment and go back "home" in april 2011 (i advised my employer in november 2010 to give them enough time to search for a substitute).

I just found out i am 4 weeks pregnant. While these are amazing (but unexpected) news, i am very confused on what my rights are...i will be moving away 4 months pregnant but i am wondering if i am entitled to any kind of benefit due to the fact that i worked here for more than 2 years. My partner will stay working in Switzerland for another year. We are not married but we are both EU citizens.

I dont want my job back, but i am going back to a country where i havent paid any taxes for more than 2 years (i was paying them here) and so its a very confusing situation, specially since my partner will stay here. I will use my insurance here until its time to go home, but i am unsure if i am entitled on some kind of parenting allowance, given than nobody will hire a 4 month pregnant woman back home. I am taking interviews and things are looking great but they will just not hire someone that is pregnant, meaning i will be unemployed until some months after birth....

Anyone could give me some advise?

Thanks a million!
