NEW YORK - Expecting mothers are getting some extra support at work from the city.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg has signed a new city law that makes special accommodations for pregnant women in the workforce, such as preventing them from lifting heavy items and allowing them to take reasonable breaks.
The bill will add to a federal discrimination law that already provides job security for pregnant workers.

News 12 asked Brooklyn residents what they thought of it. Most agree that temporary workplace accommodations are reasonable and should be made regardless of the job.
