Title: The pregnant worker: how much is too much? Assessing safe activity levels.
Authors: Feinberg, J S
Kelley, C R
Issue Date: May 1996
Abstract: Physicians should be able to advise pregnant women about safe amounts of physical activity in the workplace. A computerized literature search was used to review reproductive risks of physical activity, proper clinical evaluation and recommendations of the pregnant worker regarding physical activity, and current State of Hawaii disability legislation pertinent to pregnant workers. This article highlights the importance of making accurate clinical assessments regarding the continuation of work for the healthy pregnant worker and also provides physicians with an approach to assessing physical exposure risks of pregnant workers.
