work have requested for me to proveide them with a letter from my doctor saying i shouldnt be lifting! Are they serious, im 27 weeks pregnant. Basically my job is driving and lifting, i deliver school meals. I have spd so sitting for long periods of time is difficult so i have requested to be based in the school rather than galavanting off round the county. Can they really expect a pregnant woman to lift unless she gets a docs note?? PS im employed by the government. thought they would have been really hot at this sort of thing and accomodated me easily.
