He didn’t want to hire someone who was going to be ‘birthing anytime soon’

I handed  my notice in straight away when i found out i was pregnant. I worked in the finance industry in London. After i was married the boss made some very open comments about other PA’s who had screwed him over by becoming pregnant after only being there a few years. The chairman also asked him at a staff outing what his policies were for maternity to which he replied “il give her a pill to sort out the problem” the comment very much directed at me, one of only a couple of females in the company. I even found an email when they were hiring stating he didn’t want to hire someone who was going to be birthing anytime soon. I didn’t want to be pregnant there knowing that i would get zero understanding and extra stress so i felt i had no option and if those were his views i was better off out of there.
