Hi Moms.

I work at a very small company. They are not modern and i have a male boss. He knows im expecting. My problem is the culture. No one understand that at times i need to go home early, i feel tired, i have to eat snacks in between . I get very frustrated. Im 24 weeks pregnant. What can i do? my boss alsl doesnt support.

hi anon - do u have an HR dept? is there any senior and understanding female? if not write all ur points down on a paper and hv a frank discussion wth ur boss. tell him u love ur job but the workplace isnt conducive for an expecting mom. there is a brilliant tv ad - will pull it out for u. tc and all the best!

Talking in detail is the only way dear. Tell them clearly what is your situation and on humanitarian grounds they will pay attention. Try speaking.

Hey Anon
Please talk to them directly and make them understand your problem and needs. It will surely make things clear and better.

You have to talk to your boss and discuss your requirements with him. Men really don't care unless they are made to listen. You have to stand up for yourself otherwise he will never understand. Just go and talk to him directly.
