Abstract

Pregnant women have been advised to avoid heavy lifting during pregnancy due to concerns of adverse pregnancy outcomes including premature delivery. To date there is no evidence on the effectiveness of advice in preventing preterm birth as found in a recent systematic search and appraisal of published literature. This letter employs the findings of the review to inform future studies.
