Pregnancy is often an exciting if not nerve-wracking time in the life of a prospective mother.

This may motivate them to go back to school or to advance their education so that they can, in time become qualified for the work they strive to do.

Men and women who have worked their entire lives are struggling to find work due to what some people view as discriminatory hiring practices.
