Around 54,000 women in the UK lose their jobs each year after becoming pregnant. But that's fine!! No woman should have the right to put their own needs before the needs of good, honest British companies.
1. Schedule a charity fancy dress event for every single day of your pregnancy.
2. Distract colleagues from your bump by doing tricks.
3. Force everyone to work in total darkness by pretending that you're constantly hungover.
4. Blame your baby bump on excess flab.
5. Or, if you have a male boss, tell him your pregnancy is actually a mysterious, unseemly "lady issue."
6. Leaving work early to go to antenatal classes is a huge no-no, so use Yahoo! Answers instead.
7. You won't be able to take any time off work to give birth, so consider building a nest in a supply closet.
8. You won't be able to take maternity leave either, so disguise your baby as a new colleague instead.
9. And remember ladies, our most reliable tip is to simply not become pregnant at all.
All joking aside, if you've been affected by pregnancy discrimination, there are organisations who can help you. Contact Maternity Action for advice in the UK, or the National Partnership for Women and Families in the US.
