I think I need disability insurance.

I've just been offered a job that I want to take, only, because it's part-time (a job share, actually), it comes with no benefits. I'm covered on my husbands's medical plan, but I need to buy private disability insurance for the maternity leave (I'm not pregnant yet, but plan to be within a year or two).
I'm in Massachusetts, female, age 36, healthy -- any idea of what I can expect to pay? I'm still negotiating salary and want to take this extra expense into account.
I've no idea how much coverage I need, nor which types. Specific recommendations for good companies also would be very welcome.
