What do you do with a pregnant housemaid?

     My current housemaid is in the first trimester of her pregnancy. She's 27, married and already has 2 children. When I was interviewing her for the job, she insisted that she was done having children.
     Now that she's pregnant, I carry all the heavy things. She sleeps a lot. She's now forgetful  She has stopped folding clothes and just barely manages to do some of her regular chores. Today, she complained to me that she's been vomiting and I recommended ginger to her. I don't know whether I should prescribe some anti-vomiting (anti-emetic drugs).
     What do I do with her? Do I keep her on even though she's not really doing much? I'm a woman and I know how pregnancy feels so I don't want to just send her away like that. I'm rather hoping that she tells me that she would like to go.
     Have you had a pregnant maid?
