I'm 6.5 weeks pregnant and I work with children that exhibit challenging behaviours.
We had an 8 year old have a very violent outburst today and I needed to help my colleague move the child to a safe place. It took a lot of effort to move him (I was holding one of his arms). I didn't get hit in any way but it was strenuous. It probably only took between 30 seconds and one minute.
I was puffing heavily afterwards, but I am quite unfit.
We have steps to avoid this, but it was one of those things today where if I stood back completely my colleague would have been injured.
Should I be worried?
Thanks in advance
