Objectives: To assess the effect of extremely low frequency electromagnetic radiation on pregnancy outcomes. Design: PubMed, Web of Science, Cochrane Library, Embase and EBSCO were searched until March 10th, 2021. Search type for queue research on influence of electromagnetic field radiation on pregnancy results. Data were screened and extracted independently by two researchers. Review Manager 5.3 software was used for the meta-analysis. Participants: Pregnant women and newborns who live and do not live near extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields. Interventions: Sustained exposure to extremely low frequency electromagnetic radiation during pregnancy. Results: There was no significant increase in the risk of miscarriage, stillbirth, birth defects and preterm delivery in the pregnant women who lived near the electromagnetic fields compared with the control group. Conclusion: No correlation has been found between maternal ELF-EMF exposure and miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal birth defects and preterm delivery, while the effects on small gestational age and low birth weight are still uncertain. Related research with high-quality large samples and different regions are still needed for further verification.
