Pregnant women who work nights or long hours may be more likely to have a miscarriage or preterm delivery than mothers with day jobs, a Canadian review suggests.

With night shifts, pregnant women were 21% more likely to have preterm deliveries and 23% more likely to have miscarriages than women who worked days, the analysis found.
