To be a mother is inherent in the nature of a woman. At different stages of life, the question of motherhood arises, but today it does not require abandonment of other, equally important areas of life. A modern woman no longer divides work and pregnancy into two incompatible tasks. She is a business woman, and a leader, and a mother.
To demonstrate how the lifestyle of pregnant women has changed, ISIDA Clinic and ONE SIZE by Lena Kravets launched the project “Pregnancy is Beautiful and Fashionable”. As part of the project, in September 2016, it conducted a comprehensive online survey of Ukrainian women, the purpose of which was to study attitudes to pregnancy and lifestyle research of modern pregnant women. The survey involved 242 women, of whom 68% raise one child, 28% – two children, 3% – three, 2 mothers of four children.
According to the results of the study, 85% of expectant mothers continued to work during pregnancy. To the question “Have you traveled to Ukraine and abroad during pregnancy?” 80.3% answered positively, including 54.8% went abroad. Most traveled more than 3 times. 69% of respondents continued self-education classes and attended seminars, lectures, courses. According to the results of the survey, 65.3% of expectant mothers attended concerts, 51% of the respondents went in for sports, mainly yoga and swimming, and 63.6% continued to drive a car during pregnancy.

“Today, a lot is changing in our minds in particular and in society as a whole. Stereotypes are breaking down, borders are expanding, we are trying to live more consciously and think greener. Previously, the 40th anniversary was considered the middle of life, now at 40 everything is just beginning. It is as if we have found a second youth and want to re-experience the taste of life. We finally found freedom to start a family whenever we want, and not because “age is running out”, – says Elena Kravets.
