Description fo FMLA benefits

FMLA provides for 12 weeks of leave for a serious health condition of you or an immediate family member (which also includes pregnancy) without the risk of losing your position.

Once the twelve weeks is up, you must be able to return to your position and perform all of its essential functions or the employer is no longer required to hold your position.

If you are going to require more than twelve weeks of leave, then, yes, you may lose your job.
