    I think work have to give you ssp or you can claim it off the government or something??
    I know where I work they have to help if its pregnancy related.
    Sorry I'm not much help, just didn't wanna read and run xx

    Thanks Lau my work r desperate I have never been informed of a risk assessment done or if there is a general one x I asked one day ages ago would it b ok to get a seat n sit down while kids were outside on bikes I was told no go and lean against the wall or fence x
    I have to sit on the tiny chairs or the floor n the room x and it's killing me waiting on my physio on the 13 August x lifting 2-3 on to nappy changing station thru out the day I end up going Hme n going to bed but then if I need to get up to loo got to shout on hubby to help cos the pain is so bad :( doc says she has no doubt the bigger I get the worse til get x

    I hope you'll get sick pay hun, they certainly can't use the sickness against you if it's pregnancy related.
    I know everyone is entitled to SSP as a minimum. If you have to claim it from the government your sick note from the doctor has a section to complete. You'd better speak to the manager or check your contract if you have one? They should definitely risk assess you, they'll only get themselves in trouble!! Muppets! X
