    While, of course, I respect that it is a woman’s choice what she does with her body, I’m normally surprised about the women putting off pregnancy and having kids for the sake of their career (then potentially finding they are becoming less fertile and the pregnancy risk rises exponentially.)

    Interesting idea that becoming pregnant protects against redundancy, although it probably doesn’t although I can see the logic if workplaces are paranoid about having discrimination levelled against them.
