Pregnancy and work
Once in an interesting position, our contemporaries still continue to work, and sometimes – until the very birth.
According to statistics, 73% of employees pregnant women spend a day at the office. Office life has its own peculiarities, which the pregnant employee needs to adjust according to the situation.
Today working pregnant woman nobody surprises – this is a generally accepted rule in almost any country. But, of course, pregnancy makes its own adjustments in all areas of our lives, including – and in professional activities. But how much it is necessary to change the usual rhythm of everyday life depends on the following factors:
- Type of production. According to the current KZOTT in our country, the so-called harmful production. This includes, for example, dyeing shops, chemical and physical laboratories. Work at elevated or lower temperatures, ionizing radiation, vibration, noise, increased vapor and dust generation is also considered harmful to the future mother. It would seem, what does the office have to do with it? It turns out that work in the office can be a harmful production for of a pregnant woman – for example, if its workplace is located right next to the air conditioner, the heating system, the continuously operating copier or printer. But the monitor of the modern computer, contrary to the widespread error, does not have any harmful radiation and for the pregnant is completely safe.
- Working day mode. It matters not only its duration, but also the time of the beginning and the end of the work, the presence of breaks. The need for traveling throughout the day, business trips, overtime work – working nuances that are familiar to you before pregnancy – now can adversely affect your baby health. Important here and the overall schedule of work (daily, every other day, etc.), the number of days off.
- Place of work. Of course, the number of transplants, as well as the time spent in a traffic jam, is important for the future mother.

However, it is dangerous to stay pregnant during pregnancy, not only because of the risk of worsening blood flow. Tight clothes restrict the growth of the uterus and, consequently, worsen the living conditions of the baby.
For a full-fledged growth and development of the fetus, a certain living space is necessary. Moving in the amniotic fluid, the embryo increases its blood circulation, acquires new skills, realizes reflexes.
Finally, limiting the size of the uterus leads to a slowing of fetal growth. Inadequate living space and the amount of fetal water can provoke anomalies fetal development: the formation of fusions of the baby's organs between each other and with the walls of the uterus, the curvature of the skeleton, the disproportional development of the body.
That's why it's so important to choose the right clothes for the office.
With a predominantly sitting or standing position it is very important for the prevention of small pelvis varicose to wear bandage for pregnant women. The bandage helps to support the stomach and evenly distribute the load on the spine.

A superfluous acquisition will be and tights for pregnant women - with a supporting effect for veins (prevention of varicose veins).
Clothes for expectant mothers does not necessarily have to resemble ryazhonki - blouses, skirts and dresses can be tight. Simply, such models for pregnant women are sewn from an elastic, breathable and easily stretchable fabric that will emphasize the silhouette line, but will not tighten the body or restrict movement.
When choosing shoes, a pregnant woman should be guided by the following criteria: uniform fixation of the foot, stability of the sole, natural materials, a clear fit to the size. A small (within 3-4? Cm) and a stable heel is quite acceptable for a future mother.
The working environment should have a healthy atmosphere - the employer is interested in this no less than his pregnant employee, so if you properly motivate the requirements, you will be supported. The room should not be dusty; to control dust can be installed in the office of a humidifier and air ionizer. Special costs do not require: the means for the unit can be asked to compete for the health of the team or ask their bosses to take off with colleagues.
