Abstract

To examine the effect of noise exposure during pregnancy on infant birth weight, a well-characterized cohort of 200 pregnant women in the first trimester participating in prenatal care clinics was followed throughout gestation (in Taiwan, 1991). Individual 24-hour noise exposureof all women was prospectively measured, and information regarding possible noise exposure from traffic and occupation was also obtained. Noise exposure during pregnancy was correlated with the birth weights of the women's babies. No association between personal noise exposure measured in decibels (less than 85 dBALeq during pregnancy) and birth weight was found. Possible occupational noise exposure (indicated by working in a manual job), traffic noise exposure (indicated by distance between the home and main streets), and a history of listening to amplified music and using personal listening devices during pregnancy alsoshowed no effect on infant birth weight. Maternal weight, maternal weight gained during pregnancy, gestational age, and infant's sex were the four factors that correlated significantly with birth weight. The noise exposure experienced by women during pregnancy may not be great enough to affect their infants' birth weight.
