Women: Pregnancy and Work

Watch and listen to the Alaskan people's reaction to Sarah Palin's pregnancy while she served as governor.

Did you work while you were pregnant?

Did you work after your child was born?


  1. I worked up until the day I gave birth. I absolutely loved my job and I felt fantastic the entire time I was pregnant. I didn't work after that until my son was in school and then I worked around his school hours.

  2. Yes, I did work while I was pregnant, though it was part-time (I was mid-career change and went back to an old library job). I haven't worked in any traditional sense since my son was born, for many reasons.

    I have no issues with Palin (or anyone else) being a working pregnant woman or a working mother. I have other issues with her that are not related to her personal life, but I won't get into them here. :)

  3. I didn't work while I was pregnant (as we were in transit in the military most of the time), but after my daughter was born, I went back to work fairly soon and was glad I did.

  4. Hi Mar! Good to be here!
    I worked up until the doctor took me out for two months for bed rest, and went back to work eight weeks after "The Boy" was born (by then, I was ready) Ha! Nine years later, I'm home and ready to go back to work again! - Nards

  5. Thanks for your wonderful site. Love Sara Palin and McCain because he chose her. He's growing on me.

  6. Thank you all for your visit and comments.

    I too worked while I was pregnant with each of my boys. After 3 months, I returned to work.

    I have been mom, wife, teacher, daughter and friend for many years and the experience is one I would never trade.

  7. Hi - I just found your blog (Love it!)

    Yes, I too worked while I was pregnant, two jobs during the first four months and one up until I gave birth. Here's a quote to sum things up:

    "Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything that Fred Astaire did, but she did it backwards and in high heels."

    Thanks for a great blog, I'm looking forward to reading more.


  8. Hi Monica

    Love the quote...

    There are so many amazing woman who go unrecognized...they are the silent warriors who with grace and humility contribute so much to this world. Women have done so much; women can do so much more!

    Thank you for the visit and the kind words.

  9. I didn't work outside the home when I was pregnant with my daughter or after she was born. I did work while I was pregnant with my son and went back to work 3 months after his birth...each situation worked for me at the time. Unless there is a medical problem, I don't think there is any reason a pregnant woman shouldn't work if she wants to! It is a personal choice...
