Did you know you have a right to know about hazards in your work place and to understand the dangers associated with those exposures? During pregnancy it becomes even more important since your unborn baby is far more sensitive to exposures like chemicals, heavy metals and radiation during development.

Chemicals are expected to be properly labeled and fact sheets on the potential dangers should be provided by employers.
