Working before Pregnancy

Hazards

Many workplace exposures, such as to X-rays and chemicals, could be harmful during pregnancy. Find out if this could be a problem for you during pregnancy by discussing it with your doctor before you get pregnant. If you wait to ask until after you find out you're pregnant, you may have already exposed your developing fetus to various dangers during the early and most important weeks of development.

Standing on the Job

Studies have shown that women who stand for a long time each day have smaller babies. If you have had premature deliveries or an incompetent cervix in the past, or if your job requires that you stand a lot, discuss the situation with your healthcare provider. You may need to modify your job.

Healthcare Insurance—Are You Covered?

Not every insurance plan includes maternity coverage. Some have a waiting period to pay for surgery or for having a baby. Some may not cover your doctor or the hospital you want. Find out about these things before trying to get pregnant. Having a baby costs a lot; know what your coverage is ahead of time. Planning ahead may save you money and save you the trouble of changing doctors or hospitals.
