The Importance of New and Expectant Mothers Training

Pregnancy is an exciting time. It’s vital that the pregnant employee and their employer recognise the specific risks people can face at this time to safeguard the health of both mother and baby.

Many of these hazards can be avoided by adjusting the employee’s working conditions or altering their hours or workplace duties.

Investing in good quality training is beneficial for both mother and employer, making expectations on both sides clearer and preparing them for the transition ahead.


If you have any questions that are not covered here, please get in touch.

It is usually safe to continue to work during pregnancy. It depends on the kind of work. If it requires a lot of physical activity such as heavy lifting, it might be less safe for you to continue as usual and you may need to discuss this with your employer.

When you stop working when pregnant depends on your personal circumstances, your job duties and how much maternity leave you will be taking after the baby arrives. In less physically demanding roles, it may be possible to keep working until fairly late on in your pregnancy.

How many hours a pregnant woman will feel comfortable working will depend on her medical condition and the nature of her work. Physically demanding jobs are more likely to require reduced hours than desk jobs, but individual cases will vary. Employers should regularly discuss with pregnant employees what support they need.
