I'm 24+5 weeks pregnant and the last month I've had massive problems with pelvic girdle pain. I've had to take a week off work, and only returned for four days before I had to be driven home from work in pain, shaking and dizzy. I phoned Maternity Triage who said it sounded like like my body was telling me to slow down. Seeing my midwife on Thursday morning for my 25 week appointment.
I work with staff training in a big company with more than 20 different locations all over Manchester. Everyday at work involves standing and sitting for longer periods, as well as lots of driving (the woman at Maternity Triage said that this have helped aggrevate the pain). My question is: what would constitute as a suitable replacement job? There is really only two options: Working with the staff in the shops won't work (too much standing and lifting), working in the office would also be hard (sitting down for long periods).
Does a pregnancy-related problem such as pgp count as a risk in the risk assessment? Or is my only options to reduce my hours heavily or go on sick pay instead of being suspended with full pay?
