Working in late pregnancy linked to low birth weight babies

www.grub4life.org.uk today reports that expectant mothers who work up to their due date are likely to have babies with a lower birth weight, a new study has revealed. 01-08-2012

Women who worked eight months of pregnancy had babies on average around half a pound lighter than those who stopped work between six and eight months, researchers at the University of Essex found.

The study, which drew on data from three major studies, two in the UK and one in the US, found the effect of continuing to work during the late stages of pregnancy was equal to that of smoking while pregnant.
