My husband and I chose to be pregnant during my time as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at University of Pittsburgh Medical School. A lot of women in scientific lab-based research make this choice during their time as a graduate student or postdoc. Pregnancy in itself is a unique and eventful experience for women and, through this blog, I will take the opportunity to highlight the laboratory environment-specific steps I personally took to try and ensure that I have a healthy pregnancy while continuing to be a productive researcher.
