Hello,

I am 20 weeks pregnant and a police officer. My work has known since 16 weeks. They are very supportive and willing to accommodate. My doctor has not given me any restrictions yet. I have an appointment tomorrow.

I am afraid he is going to take me off the streets. I love my job and my pregnancy has not interfered at all. I am still a top producing officer at my department.

My work says only my doctor can put me on light duty through restrictions.

I would be extremely nervous with your profession. The high possibility of dealing with violence probably wild have put me on light duty almost immediately. I am a paramedic and am also weighing options of how to deal with my pregnancy. Ultimately you have to decide what you are comfortable with. As far as physical activity, they say you can continue normal routines, but nothing new or pushing harder than you did before you were pregnant. Lifting patients will probably have to stop for me when I am to big to safely lift the stretcher without wrenching my back. For you, you know your duties and what you are comfortable with. I would worry more about physical violence, like I said. If you choose to go off the streets for the later part of your pregnancy, as I will have to as well, as much as we both love the streets, it's temporary, and better safe than sorry. Good luck!!
