Working as a babysitter is no easy job, especially if you are expecting a baby of your own. Kudos to all mommies who are working in this phase!
Pregnancy is a physically demanding process. To describe the amount of energy required is challenging, and working full time, especially if one is doing a physically demanding profession, is not an easy job. It’s important to request modifications at work from time to time, and hopefully, there is assistance for everyone working out there.
But, at times, there are moments where the management couldn’t understand the amount of work and stress it takes to work at a daycare for pregnant women. When these women approach management for help, they are frequently told that they must either take maternity leave or quit their positions. That’s a cruel reality of today’s society. So, if you are the one who’s expecting and your coworkers or management are considerate, then count yourself lucky!
Anyways, there’s always another side of the story as well. When an expecting employee asks for the changes in their job due to their health conditions, or when these ladies are unable to “pull their weight of the work,” the other coworkers are left feeling overwhelmed and stressed out as a result of the additional work they were required to complete. None of these sides are wrong, but it is entirely the fault of management or corporations that choose to disregard the situation or who do not wish to invest in new or additional staff to aid them in their jobs.
This Reddit post is a perfect example of the entire scenario, and it will help you see how management is to blame, rather than the pregnant women or other coworkers, for their actions. To find out more about this story, continue reading further down!
Here’s an AITA post where the OP felt overwhelmed because of a pregnant coworker!
Before sharing her story, she apologized for the rude title.
Here’s what it’s like to work at a daycare – changing dozens of nappies everyday!
So, the OP works in a room with a pregnant coworker.
However, she was having some issues at work with her pregnant coworker.
The supervisors told the OP to cover the nappies shift as well because her coworker couldn’t change them due to her health conditions.
However, the OP used to cover the nappy’s shift along with the rest of her duties, whereas, this pregnant woman was enjoying her fun job.
When the OP had enough of this work, she urged her bosses to look into the matter.
Now, the OP is asking Reddit users if she did the right thing by saying no to her pregnant coworker!
Here’s an update of the post, and it’s such a nice and humble update!
