How do you feel about pregnant women having to work? I don't want to have to work while I'm pregnant. I think a woman should just be able to relax and be leisurely during her pregnancy. she shouldn't have to work unless of course its something with no labor and she feels like it. I would be pissed if I got pregnant and had to work because my husband couldn't afford to take care of me. It's kind of scary because there are so many physical things a woman has to deal with while being with child so why add job stess on top of that?

Pregnancy is not a handicap or a disability. It's better for a woman's body to stay physically active during pregnancy.

That's not counting women who have pregnancy related complications, of course.

well seeing as many households in America are dual income households....and then you have single mother households many women do work during pregnancy

both spouses working

Of married couples, 67 percent are in dual-income households.  This is a large jump from the 1960s.


also a nice number actually want to work....you know why? because they want to have a career

another reason they like making money

depending on your job you can work from home....yes it is still work but you don't have to go into the office

I didn't work while I was pregnant. I got way too sick and when I returned to my job they were not working with me so I just quit.
I know a lot of moms around my age (not married), they worked up until the couldn't anymore and feel like they're proving some point... that's fine for them. 
Some who even have 2 jobs, because they really need the money.
& i know some who didn't, I wouldn't recommend 2 jobs.
I enjoyed taking it easy.

In the UK.. Most women choose to work with 6 months mat leave 3 subsidised by the govt

A friend who works in the city said she wanted longer but didn't want a gap in her cv.

My wife will decide if she wants to or not

yeah leave plays a part too

some companies have separate maternity leave for the mother (e.g., 3 months) that does not use short term disability or vacation time

some companies even have paternity leave (e.g., 3 months) that is also separate from all other paid time off

I think being a stay at home mom is wonderful, but some do women choose to work or have to work and I don't see why we can't just look at the pros and cons of both situations

you have to pick what works best for you and your family and your goals

I also think this is a discussion you and your partner need to have while you are dating and after you get married. Continue to have it because people change

understand how pregnant women are treated in your industry

know your company's leave policy

I shared this before but my mom was able to take off 3 years when my brother was born and go back to same same position in the 1970s

When she had me in the 80s she could only take off 3 months and be able to go back to her same position, she worked at the same company

her income did not go towards the household bills, my mother liked working and liked where she worked
