In brief: Depends

This depends a lot on the type/complications of your pregnancy/delivery and the type of work you do.
I had a Jazercise instructor work up until the day before delivery and start back teaching a week later. Some with health problems may need a couple months to recuperate.If you are healthy enough and work is compatible it is fine.

In brief: Sure

If necessary and loving, concerned child care is in place, you have to do what you have to do.
And assuming you are healthy.
