Health Tip: Should I Work During Pregnancy?

Factors to consider
(HealthDay News) -- Some pregnant women worry if it's safe to continue working. The answer, experts say, depends on your health and the type of work you do.
The American Academy of Family Physicians says there may be cause for concern if your job forces you to:
Stand for long periods. Lift very heavy objects. Be exposed to lead or other heavy metals, such as copper or mercury.
The good news: Working at a computer is thought to pose no danger, the academy says. But you should consult your doctor about your work environment, the group advises.
