As well as explaining your responsibilities towards your employee, there is plenty of practical advice about how to fulfil these, ensuring that her needs are met and the interests of both of you are protected.
As your organisation is part of Tommy’s Pregnancy Accreditation Programme, you are probably already aware of, and concerned about, the issues that affect your employees when they are pregnant.
Just as you have responsibilities towards a pregnant employee, so she has a responsibility to maintain a good relationship with you. Even if you have a formal relationship with her, you’ll both benefit if you communicate clearly and quickly about any concerns you have and if you’re aware of the issues that can affect your employee.
Ideally, you’ll be able to work together to make the next months productive and fulfilling for both of you, while giving your employee the best chance of having a healthy, relaxed pregnancy and a healthy baby.
