What is the longest maternity leave in Malaysia?

I just pregnant. May i know what is the longest maternity leave? Can I start my maternity leave before or after the birth of my child?

The standard maternity leave period lasts a minimum of 98 consecutive days! Maternity leave starts no more than 30 days before the expected childbirth date unless certified by a medical officer or registered medical practitioner that the employee is unable to work due to pregnancy.
