Retiring from work is failure. They have to be acknowledged in their work and cannot endure the idea that they have to quit their position and will not do it voluntarily. When they are forced to retire they break down emotionally and get physical complaints. They easily feel imprisoned. The aggravation by confinement is on the physical level during pregnancy and also a symbolic need for space. They hate boundaries, restrictions and regulations. They need the freedom of space, a big house, the world to discover. They do not appreciate a big pregnant tummy blocking their expression and leading to constipation in all the senses of the word.
