(CNN Money)-- Yahoo is taking maternity leave to a new level, according to CNN Money. Yahoo's plan will include mothers and fathers.

Both will be able to take eight weeks of paid parental leave, and the mothers can take an additional eight weeks.

What's more, new parents will also receive $500 to buy items like groceries and baby clothes.

It's part of a slate of new benefits "to support the happiness and well-being of Yahoos and their families," the company confirmed via email. NBC Bay Area first reported these changes.

Other new perks include gifts for new pets, and eight weeks of unpaid leave each time an employee hits a five-year milestone.

Yahoo didn't confirm its previous maternity leave length, but the new policy is more in line with those of other Silicon Valley tech companies.
