7 Tips to a More Comfortable Workspace during Pregnancy

For the actively working expecting mothers , it is important to know how to make your work environment safer and more conducive for your pregnancy. Here are 7 tips on how to do so: Pregnant-Business-Woman

  1. Dress comfortably. There is a lot of fashion available for professional pregnant women in shops and online. Also wear comfortable shoes; flats and tennis shoes are best.
  2. Keep your work desk organized and have all supplies within reach. It is important to stay stocked so as to reduce unnecessary movement and stress. (Get your own stapler!)
  3. Keep cool. Maintain a comfortable temperature and go out for air if needed.
  4. Take breaks. Pregnant women need to use the bathroom a lot. Also if you have been sitting for too long, walk around for a bit and if you are on your feet a lot, take a seat once in a while.
  5. Get the right chair. Get something with proper back support, that allows you to bend your knees comfortably and is not difficult to get out of. Protect your spine!
  6. Bring your own comfort supplies. Do not expect everything to be provided for by work. Bring your own tissues, medications, first-aid kit, change of clothes, cushions, healthy snacks, heating pads and whatever else you can think of.
  7. Ask for help. If someone else can carry that large stack of folders, let them do it. It’s that simple!
