My wife is 29 weeks Pregnant and work in a hot Factory The heat index is 103 how hot is to hot?
Robert O Atlas, MD responded:
The issue really is can she get enough air and breaks in order to stay cool. I certainly worry about that temperature. I would try and see what her temperature is at work. If it is as high as that, yes, that is dangerous and she should not be working in those conditions. If she is able to maintain her temperature in the normal range, she can continue working just as long as she can keep well hydrated.

The safest thing is to have her not work.
