    Important project related tour on cards, pregnancy is in advanced stage

    I have a difficult advanced stage pregnancy and a project requires me to travel abroad and attend designerís conference. I have been working on this project from scratch. Top management is ignoring my situation and insisting to go ahead with the tour. I canít afford to ignore my health at this stage but at the same time, I cannot mess with the project at this stage. Please suggest me a solution to make the situation workable.

    Hello Aspirant,

    Your aim & situation is unique.Mind that "Health is wealth".If you are healthy & capable of working,you will have numbers of project to work on.When you feel that you are in difficult advance stage pregnancy,It is not advisable to go on tour to abroad,because in official tour you will have to go as per the programme of the office.Your personal matter will be ignored.If you miss the progrmme/conference in abroad due to your personal problem,the company will blame to you only.

    So better you contact your family doctor & get advise as to move in such condition to abroad or not.If doctor permits you to go on abroad with some assistant or alone,you can go otherwise it will be better to drop the programme.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Ashok

    This issue is sensitive here pressure creation against the opinion of pregnant lady is not correct.If the concern employee did not agree to do the tour and submit doctor's certificate then it is the risk against an unborn baby.The loss of baby can not be fulfilled by the compensation of money.So, as per my opinion top management must not create pressure rather a suitable alternative arrangement can be done.If we think positively then everything is possible ie a possible solution must come to solve the tour about the project in card.

    We can not play against the life of an unborn baby if possible if the alternate way do not possible then my decision in this regard to postpone the related project for 6 months,because it is not the question of money it is the question of precious human life.So if the concerned pregnant woman agree with the proposal willingly under the medical care then the relate project tour is possible,otherwise never.

    Thank you,

    Hi friend

    I think health should be your topmost priorty at this stage and you should not take any stress at all at this stage of your pregnancy. As you have said that you have a difficult advanced stage pregnancy its all the more reason for you to concentrate completely on your health at this stage. I think the best option for you at this stage would be to avail your Maternity leave right now. You can avail your maternity leave 3 months before your delivery date. So i am sure you have reached this stage of your pregnancy and should certainly avail your maternity leave.

    Your company should not act in such an inhuman manner and give a little consideration to your condition rather than just thinking about their own selfish gains. Travelling is certainly bad for your condition at this stage and you should go and speak to your manager in this regard. Tell him that you want to take your maternity leave now and that you will monitor the progress of this project from home. It will not be possible for you to travel at this point of your pregnancy.

    What you can do is appoint someone in your place to go the conference. Tell that person everything about the project in short. Also you can get a video made of the conference so that you can see it later. Or you can interact at the conference through webcam facility. That is the best way to overcome this situation.

    Explain to your manager these things. Whatever important work you have to do , do it from your home. Communicate the progress to your manager on daily basis.

    If your company does not listen to you , then i think its better that you leave your job. I dont think you should work in a company which doesnt have any respect for its employees and no human values. You certainly deserve better and i am sure with your calibre will find a good job where the employers respect you and not just treat you as their servant.

    I hope you are getting my point. Good luck. Thanks

    Hey!
    It is a very difficult situation for you as you have to make a choice between professional and personal life. A situation such as pregnancy is a very delicate stage and should not be taken lightly. The first thing that you should do is consult your doctor whether your health allows you to travel abroad. If the doctor permits you to travel and tells you that you can take some precautions and go for the conference then you should go ahead with it.

    Another option can be to explain to the management that your condition is such that you cannot travel. You can also testify your medical condition by giving a prescription from your gynaecologist. You can request them to go ahead with a video conference as you really want to attend the conference since you have remained associated with the project from scratch. Video conferences these days are a very feasible option for companies since that avoids the hassle of travelling and at the same time serve the purpose of a conference. It is becoming very popular because of the convenience and the pocket friendly nature of the method.

    If both the options do not work in your favour then I would suggest that you should quit going for the tour because health and a new life that you are going to give birth to is way more important than a project. Projects come and go but being blessed with a baby happens only by the grace of God and nature. So you should take a medical leave and stay at home and take care of yourself as well as your baby. I hope that you find a good solution to your problem. All the best!
