3 Do’s and 3 Don’ts for Interacting With Pregnant Residents

3 Do’s and 3 Don’ts for Interacting With Pregnant Residents

“You must be so excited!” our waitress said to me.

was so excited. At the time I was six months pregnant and enjoying a rare night out with my husband.

“Thank you, I am,” I said, beaming.

“Here you go. I’m giving you the bigger portion because you’re eating for two,” she said.

This pregnancy thing has some perks! I thought.

“But you should be careful with all that eating,” she continued, “because it’s hard to take the weight off after the baby, and you don’t want to lose your figure. So when are your twins due?”

I didn’t quite know how to answer that, partially because due dates are just estimates and babies come when they are ready, but mostly because I was not, in fact, pregnant with twins.

The whole experience was actually pretty awesome, though. Because we complained to the manager and got our dessert for free. But that is not how you should talk someone who is pregnant. Shouldn’t people in customer service know better?  Customer service is the name of the game for property managers and other employees who work onsite at the community.

Here are some do’s and don’ts for interacting with pregnant women at your properties.
