I am so sorry that you experienced any of this. I’m coming to the end of my first pregnancy now, and the response from my coworkers and university has been phenomenal. I’ve been supported at absolutely every turn. I often wonder if living in a somewhat conservative, very pro-family country like Germany has made the difference. I know that in the UK, where I come from, pregnant women get far less support.
