Impact of the Overall Workload on Pregnancy: Summary

The overall workload is evaluated by means of the cumulative set of occupational conditions, the level of physical activity and the level of energy expenditure. Exposure to an increased number of occupational conditions is linked to increased preterm deliveries and, to a lesser extent, to increased small-for-gestational-age births. Increases in the incidence of low-birthweight and high blood pressure during pregnancy are suspected in the presence of two or three occupational conditions.…

Effects of workplace noise exposure during pregnancy: Systematic review with meta-analysis and meta-regression - Abstract

Objectives To summarize the available scientific information on the effects of workplace noise exposure during pregnancy. The studied effects on pregnancy are: spontaneous abortion (SA), stillbirth (SB), congenital anomalies (CA), preterm delivery (PTD), low birth weight (LBW), small-forgestational- age (SGA) infant, pre-eclampsia (PE) and gestational hypertension (GHT). The effect of workplace noise during pregnancy on the child's hearing is also addressed.
