As a graduate student I have asked around about tolerance for child bearing
while working in the laboratory.  The impression we have (on the east coast
at least) is that the women PIs, generalizing of course, are actually less
tolerant than the men, of pregnancies while doing research.  What have your
experiences been, or what have you heard?
