Many people think that pregnancy is a fragile time for women, where they can break at any time and worse, they cannot be productive and do nothing. So here we are going to clarify about this untruth, so that it makes it very clear that this phase the woman can have her normal and routine life, obviously without excesses and rigging and except for a few isolated cases of high-risk pregnancies where the doctor requests absolute rest. But even going through a healthy pregnancy, until when to work in pregnancy?
Stop Working on Pregnancy?
There is no reason or indication for a woman to stop working as soon as she discovers the pregnancy, unless there is some risk and medical recommendation to stay away from the activity performed. As well as if the work environment offers any risk to the health of the mother and baby. If you have doubts about the danger, it is good to ask your obstetrician and talk to your superiors, who may be able to adapt your work in another sector or with another function that does not offer risks. Bearing in mind that every pregnant woman has job security, and arbitrary and unfair dismissal is prohibited.
During every pregnancy, the woman has the right to go to her monthly prenatal consultations , as long as she presents the consultation certificate to the employer and of course also comes to perform the necessary prenatal exams. However, many end up abusing this right and lacking any malaise. It is the alert that the pregnant woman has the right to 6 excused absences and that a declaration of attendance to the doctor or emergency room must be presented and if this limit number is exceeded, the employer may discount the day in the pay stub.
The woman can carry out her function normally until the end of the third trimester, if she feels so willing. After all, it is you who will decide and see your limit and will be able to request the license from your doctor. If you are feeling well and willing, you can continue with your normal activities until the day of delivery. By law, maternity leave can be taken up to 28 days before delivery and if necessary, request two weeks of rest in advance, and a medical certificate must be presented.
