How does pregnancy impact working conditions for women across Europe? The Safe Motherhood Report explored the issue of work during and after pregnancy, seeking women’s perspectives on how their pregnancy impacted their jobs and careers. Unfortunately, over one-third of women surveyed reported that their pregnancy had hampered their advancement in their workplace, and 14 per cent felt actively discriminated against.
It was also seen that many women returned to work quite soon after giving birth, with more than 50 per cent returning to part-time or full-time work within three months of giving birth. A number of women reported changed conditions and/or difficulties upon their return to work.
