Tsy fisian'ny asa mitera-doza

A pregnant woman may not be employed on any work which is beyond her strength; which involves hazards and which is of such nature or is carried out in such circumstances as to injure her morals.

During pregnancy and 3 weeks following her return to work after confinement, a woman is not allowed to carry, push or drag any load.
