Título Pregnancy outcomes among daycare employees in Finland
Información bibliográfica May 2010, Vol.36, No.3, p.222-230. Illus. 43 ref.
Resumen The aim of this study was to investigate whether working as a daycare employee increases the risk of perinatal death, pre-term birth, low birth weight, smallness for gestational age, or congenital malformations. A register-based cohort study was conducted among daycare employees and women from various occupations of healthcare (reference group). Study subjects were identified from the files of Finnish trade unions and the National Authority for Medico-legal Affairs. Pregnancy outcomes, antenatal occupation and working status were obtained by linkage to national registers. The final data consisted of 13,299 and 12,182 singleton births in the study and reference groups, respectively. Pregnancy outcome data were analyzed using generalized estimating equations and linear regression. Daycare employees were not, in general, at an increased risk of an adverse pregnancy outcome. However, efforts should nevertheless be made to prevent their exposure to harmful viruses and heavy physical load during pregnancy.
