It’s Friday, ladies, which can only mean one thing around these parts: It’s time for the weekly wrap-up of important pregnancy medical news that you may have missed this week!
Ever worry that using your cell phone or laptop could be dangerous for your little bambino-to-be? Or that working late into pregnancy could be a bad thing for your baby? Find out what the latest research suggests about these topics — and what the good news is for women over 30 having babies — here on While You Were Puking: Weekly Update on Pregnancy Medical News, after the jump!
Working Late Into Pregnancy Increases Risk of Low Birth Weight
A new study in the UK found that working up until the late stages of pregnancy can have as big an impact on a baby's health as mothers who smoke. Wait, whoa, what? Apparently, researchers discovered that babies whose mothers worked into their ninth month had lower birth weights than those whose mothers did not – which is linked to all sorts of health problems. Looks like I'm out of luck! Seriously, how many working pregnant women can take off before
the baby is born?
