The only problem I can think of is toxoplasmosis.This is easily dealt with.
The other potential issues are that the dog will detect changes in the woman (hormonal, posture & gait etc) and may respond to these. Again this is not a major issue if dealt with correctly.

Cleaning the cat's litter box can be harmful because of the bacteria in the box. But other than that, barring that your dog has some sort of communicable disease (rabies ringworm, etc), it is not harmful.
