Laburpena: Objective: To describe the perception of musculoskeletal discomforts and global work load in occupationally active pregnant women. Method: A sample of 30 women between 20 and 34 weeks of gestation who were treated in the Hospital Clínico of the Universidad de Chile. Perception of musculoskeletal discomforts was assessed using the Body Part Discomfort Scale and the Global Work Load with the NASA-Task Load Index method. Results: A 83,3% showed the perception of musculoskeletal discomforts, especially in the pelvis and hip region. The percentage of occupationally active pregnant women that presented this perception was 89,47% while the percentage of non-working women was 81,81%. Regarding the Global Work Load, dimensions of mental and temporal demand obtained the highest score in working pregnant women. Conclusion: This early study of the perception of musculoskeletal discomforts in occupationally active pregnant women, as well as the screening of the global work load is significant in developing prevention strategies for early musculoskeletal disorders. It is recommended to continue research that determines the relationship level between risk factors and musculoskeletal disorder development.
