    I had a risk assessment at work and the policy said that the risk should be evaluated and where it's too great to the mother or unborn child then things should be out in place to reduce it or eliminate it. This can include reducing how much you have to do something or putting you in another job role (at the same pay) where the same risks to do not exist. I work for the prison service tho so a lot of that relates to risk of harm from prisoners. Although, with your clients some of that risk is likely to be the same? Might be worth googling it, do you know anyone else who has been pregnant where you work? Xx

    I don't want to announce it. Where I work we have a few low risk challenging behaviour. It's more hoisting and things. I'm hoping we can get around it without having to broadcast it.

    My friend was in a similar job to you and when she was pregnant she had to move to work in the office as they risk assessed that it wasn't safe for her to stop in the same job role x

    They would possibly suspend you on full pay if that was the case. It sounds awful that doesn't it but its not like a "punishment" iykwim x
