How do I know I long I should work during my pregnancy?

Deciding How Long to Work

Deciding how long to work during your pregnancy is a very personal decision. Your overall health, energy level, income needs, and career goals will all come into play. Some women may work to their seventh or eighth month of pregnancy while others may work up to the very end. In general, it's always wise to check with your employer's maternity leave policies to get an idea of what your options are. Plan for unforeseeable events like an early labor and delivery or being put on bed rest.

It's a good idea to consult your doctor about your specific situation.
