This article discusses findings of a survey conducted by baby charity Tommy's with Johnson's Baby, which revealed an increasing number of pregnant women experiencing workplace stress in Great Britain. The results suggested that as many as 88 percent of women feel stressed during pregnancy--and this may not be good for the developing baby. Nearly half of the women questioned were pregnant at the time and the rest were already mothers. The majority of the women were also in full- or part-time employment.
