Inhibitions Vs. Reality

In today’s day and age, there are many inhibitions attached to working pregnant woman.
 
#YourSecondHome brings some realities to the front to burst the bubble on these inhibitions and give you a clearer picture.

INHIBITION

Pregnancy has a negative impact on a woman’s performance at work.

REALITY

Pregnancy doesn’t hamper a woman’s work performance. Lack of access to higher education, dearth of opportunities and unfriendly working conditions do.

INHIBITION

When women get pregnant, they are not likely to devote themselves to the job.

REALITY

Women look for benefits such as mentoring programs, anti-sexual harassment policies, and equal opportunities as male counterparts before taking up a job. The aforementioned benefits enable women to devote themselves to the job, regardless of their pregnancy.

INHIBITION

Pregnant women are not likely to continue their jobs after returning from maternity leave.

REALITY

On the contrary, a study says that 34% of married women in Delhi and neighbouring cities continued to work even after having a child.

INHIBITION

When pregnant, women are not able to balance the hours between work and home.

REALITY

Studies prove that women are better at multitasking than men. A woman’s multitasking skills attain a new level after giving birth, as activity in their prefrontal cortex increases. The prefrontal cortex is the part of the brain that is responsible for the ability to multi-task.

INHIBITION

Pregnant women do not have the energy to work and seem tired most of the time.

REALITY

On the contrary, doctors recommend doing some exercises and take up light household work. Sitting idle does more harm than good to a pregnant woman.

INHIBITION

It’s a man’s world. Women are fit for only childcare, while men are fit to be breadwinners.

REALITY

Studies suggest that paternity leaves add to an even distribution to childcare responsibilities. Childcare-friendly policies help women increase their business acumen and professional contacts, letting them take higher management positions. For companies, women among the top brass means higher rate of success.
