Cathryn's Story - Support at Work while Pregnant

One of our Care Assistants Cathryn, who is currently 34 weeks pregnant wanted to share her story to show what it is like working with us while pregnant and how the company has supported her.

"Bluebird Care Eastbourne & Wealden have taken care of me from the very beginning of my pregnancy. They have conducted regular risk assessments ensuring that the safety of both myself and my baby are never compromised through my work.

They have emotionally supported me through my many hormonal mood swings. Bluebird Care have enabled me to work throughout my pregnancy without feeling any kind of pressure or uncertainty about my future, if anything I have never felt more secure and supported in my role as a care worker.

We have worked together as my body and stamina have changed, I always feel in control and never feel unsafe in my work. Being heavily pregnant in this industry is more than achievable due to the variety of care that we provide, and the flexibility of the job. I know that If I was to feel uncomfortable with particular tasks as my body changes that the management team are there to support me and more than happy to move things around.

I feel excited to start my new role as a mother, but I will miss my work and my bluebird family whilst away. I have been very lucky and fortunate to be apart of such a warm, caring, professional and friendly team and can not wait to continue my career within Bluebird Care.

Biggest thank you and kisses from myself and bump for all you have done for us."
