Introduction: according to the Labour Risks Prevention Law 31/1995 of November the 8th, Chapter III, article 26 "Protection of Maternity", the employer must carry out all precautions in order to avoid exposure to risks in pregnant women as well as breastfeeding women. Objective: know all characters of healthcare workers that declared their pregnancy to the Labour Risks Prevention Service (LRPS). Method and materials: the study design is transversal; all data was obtained from the healthcare workers that declared their pregnancy to the LRPS in 2009; a descriptive statistic analysis of media +/- standard deviation and percentages was done. A value of p<0.05 was considered statistically significant. Results: 50 persons declared their pregnancy; age average was 33.10+/- 3.18 years. The age group that most frequent declared was 30-34 years (52 %), the average week of pregnancy at the moment of declaring was 12.01 +/- 5.18; the professional category that most frequently declared was UNQ (University Nursing Qualified) 24.48 %. Conclusions: according to the results obtained and after contrasting them with the data of the Community of Madrid, other studies must be designed to find out if there is underreporting of pregnancy and its causes.
