I assumed that it meant the same, but don't want to risk it without a definite answer from themFunny how we all read things differently as I took the term 'enlighten' to mean 'educate' as in 'Let me enlighten you. Who knows!
Just going through old posts of mine and saw this reply. I wanted to draw anyone reading now’s attention to the fact that it took you over a year to reply to the thread so it’s hardly surprising that no one in your office could remember advising me at the time!I have asked our director, Lynne Archer about this, who says:
"I have talked to the staff in our Guild membership office and no one recalls advising a member about this matter. Usually all questions that are treatment and insurance related are referred to myself to answer personally. We can offer our members insurance cover to carry out treatments on pregnant clients as long as the client remains fit and healthy throughout their pregnancy. I totally agree that pregnancy is not an illness. However, if the client advises you that she has a history of problems e.g. miscarriages then you should not offer treatment without GP's written consent. Also if the pregnant client has advised you that she has developed certain medical conditions during the pregnancy that are contra-indications to the treatment that she has requested, they must obtain a letter from their GP prior to offering treatment. Waxing of any kind can be carried out on a healthy pregnant client, but this can be a little tricky as the pregnancy progresses as the "bump" can get in the way and the client can be uncomfortable. Pregnant clients must not be allowed to lie on their backs for too long. You really need to use a level of common sense to know if it is going to be possible to carry out the treatment safely and effectively."
