Working Smart and Safe

A word of caution: Take extra good care of yourself if you're a working and pregnant woman.

If you work outside the home, talk to your provider early on about any medical conditions or work-related factors that could influence how -- and how long -- you stay on the job. In general, this will depend on your health, your age, how the pregnancy is progressing, any problems you've had during prior pregnancies, and the type of work you do. Avoid working more than 8 hours a day, five days a week, and take advantage of all available lunch and rest breaks.
