Can I do anything legally ifmy employer reneged on a promise of 3 months maternity leave?

Before my wife started her new job, her friend promised her 12 weeks of maternity. She is currently pregnant and at high risk. He just recently told her that he could only give 6, maybe 8 weeks of maternity leave because he needs her there and is valuable to him. Then he told her that if she takes 12 weeks off, which is likely going to be the case according to her doctor, he made the comment that she may not have a position for her when she ants to come back. He also said that if she wants to use her breast pump that she would have to do it at lunch in her truck.
