This up-to-date guide addresses all the subjects you would expect to find in an authoritative book on pregnancy plus issues of special concern to the 60 to 80 percent of women who hold jobs during their pregnancies: is my workplace safe for my developing baby?; when should I tell my employer that I am expecting?; how can I handle the discomforts of pregnancy when I need to work?; what laws will protect me when I take medical leave? The answers to these questions, and myriad others, can be found in the pages of this practical and reassuring book. Dr. Marjorie Greenfield draws from her experiences as an obstetrician and working mother, and from more than a hundred interviews with mothers ranging from factory workers to high-powered attorneys, to create a unique resource for working women. Dr. Greenfield includes checklists for multi-tasking working mothers-to-be, helpful illustrations, stories and advice from experienced mothers, and information on everything from planning a pregnancy to balancing life after the baby is born. The Working Womans Pregnancy Book is an invaluable, expert resource that will inform, reassure, and empower any working woman throughout the miraculous journey of her pregnancy.
