"Some women do choose to stay home before and after they give birth, but it should be their choice, not a decision based on what their employers perceive to be possible. Physically, I could have worked until the day I gave birth and then could have returned two days later. But I had an easy labor and a quick recovery. I even shot handheld on ice skates when I was 7 months pregnant. But the second I outed myself as pregnant (8 months), the phone stopped ringing. And that was frustrating. It should have been up to me if I was capable to work or not. More than anything, I look forward to the day when I am referred to as a D.P., not a female D.P., and the work is allowed to speak for itself." --Cinematographer @rmorrison
