I know that in other countries, pregnant women can get "paid time off" because they're pregnant. Although if the woman chooses to work, I guess thats her choice. Now here in America, I think some may get paid time off, but not always. In fact the women want to work or have to work. I think there has been cases of women who have been threatened to be fired or have been fired because of it. Or if they take the time off, they are like if they were fired, because the company won't pay them for the time off. So the woman goes to work because she needs the money. Others work no matter what. I member watching this thing on youtube that a woman in a show (I think Phantom) continued to be in it till the day she was to give birth. My personal thing for me is that if my wife is pregnant I wouldn't want her to work simply because I don't want her to be stressed or get hurt or anything. If its a desk job..eh..maybe. But even that is a stretch. I think that around the 7 month period is probably when (depending, but on her choice) of when she can stop working, and yeah get paid time off. But the real decision I guess is for the husband and wife to decide if she will still work. What do you think? Should pregnant women be allowed to work? And should they get paid time off?
