Abstract
Guidelines designed by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology to help the obstetrician assemble and interpret the information necessary for appropriate clinical recommendations to pregnant workers are discussed. A committee of four obstetricians, three occupational physicians, and a panel of consultants reviewed the latest information concerning the relationship between work, work exposures, and pregnancy, and developed a monograph which offers a structural framework for the logic and application of sound clinical judgment for analyzing work and pregnancy information. An algorithm based on the nature of the work and work environment, the health of the worker, and the pregnancy is suggested to help the physician assess the individual case. Physiological changes occurring in each trimester of pregnancy that may alter a person's ability to work are reviewed, and pharmaceuticals that may have an impact on the state of the pregnancy or health of the fetus are analyzed. A bibliography, a list of women's occupations and exposures, and a glossary of terms used in occupational medicine are included.
