MumsVet, the British Equine Veterinary Association’s (BEVA) online information and support network for equine veterinary professionals who are balancing work with parenthood, has introduced the essential BEVA Bump Protector, to help pregnant equine vets feel safer in practice.
 
Currently 55% of equine practitioners are female and the new BEVA Bump Protector will help to keep them safer in the workplace during pregnancy. Lightweight, fully adjustable and designed to fit ergonomically across all shapes and sizes of bump, this clever bit of personal protection equipment is a must for any equine practice. The Association strongly is advising all equine veterinary practices to keep one in stock to help keep members of their veterinary team protected whilst at work.
 
Vicki Nicholls, President of BEVA and one of the founders of MumsVet, came up with the innovative idea having been asked by a newly pregnant friend whether there was some sort of padded bump cover that she could wear on her forthcoming ski trip, to give her piece of mind on the slopes.
 
Vicki said: “MumsVet has made us all so much more aware of the breadth of support BEVA should be offering to members during parenthood. We have become increasingly concerned about the risks posed to pregnant women and their bumps and we believe the BEVA Bump Protector is an essential piece of kit for any equine practice.”
