Would you do it, assuming this was already your job when you became pregnant?

I've been a bartender for around 6 months and I recently found out that I'm pregnant. My df thinks I should quit. ..and another person, one of my customers said I wouldn't be a bartender long bcuz now a kid is involved. ...not sure what he meant by that. I already have 2 kids

My only concern would be smoking but most areas have outlawed it in bars so why not. Money is money.

Only smoking allowed is at the outside bar

That's what I figured. It's not like you are drinking the booze. I would continue to work.

I don't see why you couldn't continue if that's what you want to do. People are going to be judgemental no matter what you do. But there's nothing wrong with bartending while pregnant or otherwise IMO.

I would.  If I was physically able to.  In our state there is no smoking allowed in bars and restaurants.  I wouldn't be doing any drinking.  Well not of alcoholic type.

As long as you take precautions I don't see a problem

If I quit it's going to be due to late hours and my major fatigue, not how people will look at me
