Your partner’s employer should have a list of all the chemicals that are used in the workplace. Those that are dangerous to pregnant or lactating women should be posted, and she should not have contact with them. If you have any questions about this, you can contact the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), 200 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20210. The OSHA website, www.osha.gov, is also an excellent source of information.
