Should pregnant women be able to park in designated 'parent and child' spots?

Asma Mohiuddin, who was due to give birth in 9 days, was shocked to find a parking ticket on her dashboard when she returned to her car with her husband, Nadeem, after shopping for diapers and baby essentials. " I was unaware that a woman who is nine months pregnant could be deemed not to be accompanied by a child," said husband, Nadeem. They appealed the ticket and received this response from parking operator Smart Parking " As the driver was not accompanied by a child, the vehicle was parked in breach of the advertised terms and conditions. We have  no alternative but to uphold the Parking Charge Notice." Only after the story was reported in a local newspaper did the supermarket bosses apologize. Do you think a pregnant woman should be able to park in the designated 'parent and child' parking spots?
