Share your views: Pregnant Mother Parking Spaces?
How do you feel about expectant mother parking spaces??
Here's a few different views on the subject- what are yours??
The Stir: I'd
rather see a store focus on making the aisles wide enough and the
carts safe enough. Or better yet, if our society would like to provide a
more convenient situation for pregnant women, how about more flexible
work situations, better maternity leave, and health insurance that
actually covers our medical expenses?
- About.com: The proponents of so called stork parking or stroller parking, say that pregnant women, or women with small children need the convenience of these designated spots that are often very close to the door of stores. While not all stores or all cities have stork parking, those that do say that it's very popular.
- WebMD: .My feeling is that a pregnant woman who shouldn't be walking long distances should have a legitimate temporary handicapped placard.
