What are the health risks of working nights when pregnant?
In 2013, a Danish survey suggested a possible link between night shifts and a raised risk of miscarriage. However, everybody’s pregnancy will be different, and advice from the Royal College of Physicians is that since the evidence of raised risk of miscarriage linked to night work is comparatively weak, they do not recommend a mandatory change to shift patterns. Instead, any change to working patterns should depend on the individual woman.
