Occupational Health Company Says Pregnant Women Can Work Safely
Being pregnant is a beautiful gift – but that doesn’t mean it is all roses and sunshine. Being pregnant means having to deal with a whole slew of issues, such as:
• Increased urination
• Hormonal changes

Many people ask occupational health companies whether women should be working while pregnant and the answer isn’t black and white. Sometimes it is simply – it depends.
