Abstract

     Pregnant healthcare personnel work in vulnerable conditions that can adversely impact pregnancy outcome such as spontaneous abortion, preterm labor, low birth weight, stillbirth and congenital anomaly. This literature review aims to present adverse pregnancy outcomes that may be due to hospital work. These including spontaneous abortion, preterm labor, low birth weight, stillbirth and congenital anomaly. Health hazards in the hospital (anesthetic gases, antineoplastic agents, sterilizing agents), biological hazards (bacteria, virus and fungal), ergonomics (physical demand and heavy lifting) and psychosocial (strenuous work schedule and stress).
