In a very shocking incident, a pregnant lady was asked to finish a work meeting while she was in labor.
The woman finished the board meeting in the car while on her way to the hospital.
Christiine Carrillo, Twitter shared how her pregnant friend’s water broke during the meeting and she needed to reach the hospital as soon as possible. The lead investor insisted that the meeting first be ended, which forced her to do so while on her way to the hospital in the car.
“Friend’s water broke during a board meeting. She says, “I need to go to the hospital my water just broke!” Lead investor from a well-known fund says, “Ok, but can we finish the meeting first?” She finished the board meeting in the car while en route to the hospital,” wrote Christine.

The tweet has outraged Twitter users, who are disgusted by the company’s cruel and insensitive behavior towards the woman. Many users wanted the name of the company to be revealed and expressed shock over the incident.
If this happened in the final month (>36w), then why in heavens name was this person at work at all in the first place? Having to work until your water breaks is just 🤯

This crap is not just at board level. My wife had a miscarriage and was on her way to the hospital and I was telling my then boss (a woman in her 30s by the way) that I had to leave and why…her answer was “but you wouldn’t be much use there…”

Yooooooo. This is disgusting. We need to call folks out for this crap. People need to know to never take money from this investor

I worked the entire day I was in labor with my daughter – meetings all day (kept post it notes of how far apart my contractions were) – then went to the hospital an hour after my last meeting to give birth. This happens in the startup world and corporations. It’s appalling.
