Pregnancy is the most crucial time period in the life of a woman. A womans body sees several changes during this phase of her life. It is thus important for her to take utmost care of herself. Besides, chances of disabling pregnancy can never be ruled out.
Therefore care and precautions should be more sincere, especially for a working woman during pregnancy. A professional woman spends most of her day at workplace. It thus becomes more important for her to be observant about her body and also about her regular and timely check ups.
Disabling pregnancy for a working woman means that she would not be able to carry on her usual routine work in the office. So as a working person, it becomes important for you to keep a regular tab on your health and consult a good physician who can guide you through the problems.
Generally, disabilities related to pregnancy can be classified into three broad categories.
The most common form of disability that is found in pregnant women is due to pregnancy itself. With pregnancy, there comes a lot of side effects. These side effects can range from nausea, indigestion, dizziness, regular vomiting to swollen legs and ankles. All these problems can be causes of temporary or what you can call as a partial disability.
The magnitude of disability affliction in this category is very less. But if you see any of these symptoms in your body, you should know what to do. You should immediately report about it to your doctor. Besides this, at the time of labor pains some form of disability might occur, if no proper medical attention is provided to the condition.
Not every woman has a normal pregnancy. If a woman tends to be negligent, chances of certain complications at the time of delivery are more. The magnitude of a complication may vary from a minor one to some aggravated serious problems. The serious problems can range from infection and bleeding in the uterus to the onset of early labor pains or even rupturing of the amniotic sac (which is the protective shell of the fetus). All these can cause short-term or long-term disability in a pregnant woman and even the offspring.
Besides this, there can be several medical conditions like diabetes, extreme fluctuations in the blood pressure with other cardiovascular disorders that might act as a disabling factor during pregnancy.
There are certain disabilities that might occur due to exposure to the various toxic substances. This will usually happen when a pregnant woman is out to her workplace. These toxic substances will not only affect you but can also harm the health of the fetus.
If your doctor confirms any of these symptoms then your pregnancy can be termed as disabling.
Thus, always follow the list of dos and donts set by your doctor and report him every little change that you notice in this most crucial phase of your life. For a little negligence can pay very hard to you and your baby. Pregnancy is the origin of new life and perhaps the most beautiful thing on this planet. Enjoy it to full!
