Rapid responses are electronic comments to the editor. They enable our users to debate issues raised in articles published on bmj.com. A rapid response is first posted online. If you need the URL (web address) of an individual response, simply click on the response headline and copy the URL from the browser window. A proportion of responses will, after editing, be published online and in the print journal as letters, which are indexed in PubMed. Rapid responses are not indexed in PubMed and they are not journal articles. The BMJ reserves the right to remove responses which are being wilfully misrepresented as published articles.
This article is very important because there is very little information on this subject. The number of women working in the health sector is higher compared to men. In addition, the work days are long with hard jobs. For example, lifting patients, administering medications and performing special procedures are some of the long lists of tasks that women may be in charge of and that do not receive adequate recognition.
It is also evident that many of the health institutions do not have within their norms or policies any appropriate strategy that guarantees the care and well-being of these women when they decide to become pregnant.
It seems pertinent that more research is done on the subject, that countries replicate this type of study according to their context and culture and that the respective improvements are made if necessary, since women have the right to have a pregnancy with adequate conditions without any limitations.
