Not clear what you mean by "Also is this considered 2 different fmlas'?" FMLA is FMLA, regardless of the why even if it's multiple reasons. (We cannot know if, when or as to which she might use up her 12 weeks' worth of time in a 12-month period, but anything related to time off for the son's health issues can't help but eat away at whatever she'll be able to take off due to pregnancy and post-birth and not give the employer an "out" if it wants to get rid of her because she's run out of FMLA time.)
As for "short term disability" program/policy, that simply speaks to what may cover part of her pay while she's out. Not relevant as it relates to FMLA law.
I'll echo PG's advisory "warning" with a twist: (Many) legal issues are complicated. Explanations and comments here might not fully identify or explain the ramifications of your particular problem. I do not give legal advice as such (and such is impermissible here at any rate). Comments are based on personal knowledge and experience and legal info gleaned over a quarter century, and every state has differing laws on and avenues to address most topics. If you need legal advice, you need to consult (and pay) a professional so that you may have someone to hold accountable. Acting on personal and informational advice from a stranger on the internet is a bad idea -- at least not without your own thorough due dilience/research and confirmation as it applies to your situation.
