Pregnancy, though a beautiful journey, is one that is fraught with challenges — all the more, when you are a working woman. Yet, when we look around us, we see so many pregnant working women going about their lives in the most usual manner possible. They commute to their workplaces like anyone of us, juggle their work and personal lives with elan and still manage to infuse their best in whatever they do – no questions asked, no complaints.
As colleagues and employers then, is there anything we can do to make this journey more special and beautiful? The answer is ‘yes’. And that’s exactly what PregaNews has depicted in this wonderful video they have released, ahead of Mother’s Day. Before we tell you more, have a look at the video.
The video is very relatable. It instantly strikes a chord with you, but most importantly, it makes you introspect. It sensitises you towards the needs of pregnant working women. Pregnancy is not an easy journey and this video makes you realise that as a colleague or employer, there are little ways in which you too can make a difference. With a little more concern and sensitivity, you can work towards making your office a more inclusive place.
Come to think of it, when was the last time you walked up to a pregnant colleague and reminded her to have lunch on time? When was the last time you checked with her to see if there’s anything she needs? Well, in case you are finding it tough to answer these questions, it’s alright. It’s never too late to begin. After all, your office is #YourSecondHome.
