      Pregnant women across the globe often find themselves exposed to extreme heat while performing daily tasks, and this study aims to shed light on the potential dangers it poses to both expectant mothers and their unborn children. Researchers have already identified numerous adverse outcomes associated with heat exposure during pregnancy, including preterm birth, low birth weight, stillbirth, and congenital anomalies. Women in regions with high temperatures, such as rural areas in Kenya, often engage in physically demanding tasks outdoors, which can lead to various health problems, including high blood pressure, miscarriages, or premature births.

      The resulting dehydration can cause severe contraction of the uterus leading to labor and this condition is associated with babies with low birth weight.
