It isn't the best thing for anyone really to just sit at a computer for long hours without any breaks. While no major harm will likely happen, as a pregnant woman you need to keep the blood flowing in your body, and sitting for long periods of time can cause slowed blood flow, swelling, and backaches.

Probably not but the circumstantial evidence should be looked into and considered and then decide if it is worth the risk. There have been reports of "pregnancy problem cluster" occuring among computer terminal employees. Hopefully studies will be conducted so women can make educated choices for themselves and their unborn chidren.

Yes. Exercising during pregnancy promotes health and well being for pregnant women, in many ways. First women, who exercise during pregnancy have reduced weight gain, more rapid weight loss after pregnancy and improved mood and sleeping patterns. Some studies have shown faster and easier labors, for those women who exercised while pregnant. Exercising while pregnant improves tone and flexibility, and increases circulation. Next: Lactic acid alters the taste and effectiveness of breastfeeding, so if you reach what is called the anaerobic threshold, just wait for one or two hours before breast feeding. As a rule of thumb the anaerobic threshold is reached while running at 7.5 mph for 15 minutes.

Ya according to me it might affect the pregnant ladies because they have to take good rest sitting in front of the computer makes them tired and it might affect the childs growth also, but for the breast feeding ladies we can't say it might r not affect them one way is there for them they can take break for every 1 hour and then try to continue their job.

Thank u.

As a pregnant woman who is on the computer throughout the day, this activity is not harmful. As long as throughout the day the woman gets some excercise and changes positions periodically,there is no harm done.

By the way, sitting on a computer is a form of rest. After excessive periods of time at the computer, the woman in question ought to get up and walk or do some sort of low impact excercise. The harm is in the woman staying to sedentary throughout the day.

As with anyone, sitting in front of a computer (or a TV) for extended periods of time, can cause stress and strain to your eyes. Also, if you do not sit with proper form your back and neck can become sore as well. This is espically true for women who are pregnant.
