In brief: Not usually
There are a number of physiologic changes that occur during pregnancy.
Pregnancy is not an illness, however. Most women can continue working safely although certain modifications may be necessary due to physical changes that occur. There are certain chemicals you want to avoid exposure to. As pregnancy progresses, women will experience more discomfort and may need to limit their activity.
