You might call me old fashioned, but despite being young(ish), highly qualified, highly educated and quite respected in my career field I’ve found it quite obscure that once pregnant every second person seems to believe what is right or wrong for you and your unborn child. Women are shunned and persecuted for publicly sipping on half a glass of wine or for applying medicated eye drops. But when I entered a bakery and was told by the ‘shop assistant’ that I couldn’t purchase a jam donut as the ‘health of my unborn child required I watch more closely the calorie intake your having’ I couldn’t believe it. My body is my body and if I wish to eat jam donuts all day and gain 20kg while pregnant that’s my choice surely.
