    Shouldn't you work have carried out a risk assessment of your working conditions as a pregnant lady? I would have thought that that conditions you are working under are probably not recommended therefore they would either need to do something about it or suspend you on full pay.

    Have you checked out your maternity rights with regards to working conditions? Could be worth doing :)

    Hi itfc_mad

    Kim's right they should be risk assessing you. If your job is found to be unsafe for you they should provide you with alternative work that doesn't. If they can't provide alternative work then they should suspend you on full pay till you have the baby.

    Hope that helps.
