Pregnancy and the Working Woman

Every day working women feel pressure to carry the world on their shoulders, whether that means advancing in their careers, establishing an identity that adheres to their values and principles, or starting or continuing a family in the midst of all the above. Sometimes, and maybe too often, women chose to forgo getting pregnant out of fear of timing misalignment with their jobs.
