Many pregnant women find suffering through a hot summer unbearable, but the reward of having a child makes up for some months of discomfort. Most expectant mothers simply chalk it up to being part of pregnancy. In some parts of the world, however, comforts like air conditioning or even a glass of cold water are hard to come by, so scientists set out to determine if the effects of high temperatures on a pregnant woman also extend to her baby.

A systematic review of research articles outlining the health impact of heat-related exposure on pregnant women was carried out by researchers from the Milken Institute School of Public Health at George Washington University. The studies showed that exposure to extreme temperatures can have a negative effect on birth outcomes. In particular, it can cause changes in birth weight or the length of gestation, stillbirth, and neonatal stress when temperatures are unusually high. The researchers said that expectant mothers’ unique vulnerabilities to heat need to form part of public health policy, and they added that the dangers are particularly pronounced in cases where pregnant women do not have good access to prenatal care.

This coincides with earlier findings outlined by the World Bank that show exposure to unusually hot temperatures during at least one month of pregnancy can reduce the probability of a baby being born at full term by 0.5 percentage points. They also cite a study that found that babies born to mothers who were exposed to extremely elevated temperatures during their second or third trimester weighed 7 to 11 grams less than other babies.

Now the George Washington University scientists are calling for further research into the ways that climate change impacts the health of expectant mothers and neonatal outcomes. They even want uniform standards to be set for assessing the heat’s effects on maternal fetal health.

Concern for babies only emerges when it furthers their cause
