Every year thousands of women are fired, made redundant, or leave their jobs due to pregnancy discrimination. Many more are forced to give up their jobs because there is no arrangement in place to allow for flexible working. A large number of these women are later forced to enter low-paid, unskilled work because their former employers will not take them back, or because they cannot reenter their career. But having both a child and a career is not impossible. This eye-opening study contains a unique mix of academic research, general knowledge, statistics, and many examples of real women speaking about their experiences with becoming pregnant while working. Essential advice on what women should do before entering motherhood and solutions for how to return to work after a break are also included.
