Abstract: The influence of social support, work overload and parity on psychological well-being of pregnant career women was investigated. Women executives (N200) attending antenatal clinics were selected. A 2 x 2 x 2 analysis of variance (A NOVA) revealed significant independent influence of social support (F (1. 199) = 26.51, p<0.05) and work overload (F (1.199) =461.76, p<0.05), and significant joint effect of social support and work overload. There was no significant effect of parity (F (1.199) = 0.72, p < 0.05). Combinations of parity, social support and work overload were also not significant (F (1. 199) = 0.80, p> 0.05). Social support and appropriate work incentives are helpful in assisting pregnant women executives in coping with psychological changes during pregnancy.
