Working during normal sleep hours, high physical job demands and exposure to cosmic radiation may put pregnant flight attendants at higher risk for pregnancy loss. Researchers found that early miscarriage was about 2 times as likely for a pregnant flight attendant with high physical job demands compared to those without high physical job demands. High physical job demands included standing and walking for more than 8 hours a day and bending at the waist more than 25 times a day.
