Although the hard and physical work does not hinder the foetus’s development, the women who have a longer working day have smaller children than the average pregnant women.
According to a study that was published by the Occupational and Environmental Medicine magazine, researchers from Rotterdam city studied through ultrasound techniques the foetal growing in more than four thousand five hundred pregnant women.
Their results pointed out that the heads of the sons that belong to the pregnant women who spend a long time in a standing-body position have one centimetre smaller than the average.
In addition, women who work from 25 to 39 hours weekly, like those ones who normally work more than 40 hours, used to have smaller children who had a lower-growing process during the pregnancy period.
As an average result during the birth, the babies measured a centimetre smaller than those ones that belong to women working less than 25 hours daily. News Desk: Radio Rebelde
