This daily task could be dangerous for pregnant women

Pregnant women who commute long distances to work every day risk having babies born premature and underweight, according to a new study published in Economics & Human Biology.

Researchers from Lehigh University and the University of Wisconsin-Madison noted that while a growing body of research has linked long commutes with making workers more depressed, obese and sleep-deprived (not to mention being associated with high blood pressure, neck and back pain, and higher rates of divorce), there haven’t been empirical studies to examine what lengthy trips to work and back during pregnancy might do to a developing fetus.
