Intakes of radionuclides by women who are, or may become, pregnant

This report considers the consequences of occupational exposures leading to intakes of radionuclides by women who are, or may become, pregnant. Estimates are given of potential doses to offspring following intakes of a selected range of naturally occurring and artificial radionuclides that might arise for different contamination scenarios in the workplace.

The radionuclides covered are of interest from both routine operations and accidental releases.  The 2nd part of this report, entitled “Doses received from ingestion of mothers’ milk”, is now available on the HSE website.
