Work and Healthy Pregnancy: take action

Enhancing the health of both the mother and child during and after pregnancy
Publication date: 01 January 2015

Exposure to dangerous substances, heavy-duty work and shifts can have detrimental effects on pregnancy, for both the mother and child. Specific exposure to toxics or teratogens can lead to a mother’s high blood pressure or miscarriage. The child runs the risk of premature birth, low birth weight and/or congenital defects. The project ‘Work and Healthy Pregnancy – take action!’ aspires to improve the mother’s and child’s health during and after pregnancy as regards the potential impact of harmful work factors.
