BERITA Harian reported an appeal by midwives specialist and gynaecologist Dr Harlina Halizah Siraj of the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Hospital for factories to give exemptions to pregnant women in jobs which require workers to stand. 

She said this was to avoid the risk of premature births, adding that standing for too long could lead to fainting, swollen feet and affect blood flow to the foetus.
