Abstract

The proportion of pregnant women who work during pregnancy is increasing as more women move into previously male-dominated occupations. With this move, occupational exposure to chemical or physical factors during pregnancy could be further increased. In the last decade, there have been many reportson the causes of birth defects. Unfortunately, most reported associations between occupational exposures and adverse reproductive outcomes in epidemiological studies are equivocal and often controversial. Many reported associations are only suggestive. More information is needed before firm conclusions can be drawn. The major reasons for ambiguous findings are due to limitations of study methodology, e.g. inappropriate endpoints, multiple confounders, low study power and inadequate analysis methods. It must also be noted that maternal work, and therefore exposure, may also differ greatly fromcountry to country.
