Hi Anonymous,

Smoking while your are pregnant is not only harmful to you but it also becomes harmful to your baby. 

The chances of stillbirth, placental abruption, miscarriage, low birth weight, pelvic pain, premature rupture of the membranes, and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome significantly increase if the mother smokes during pregnancy.

Keep in mind that second-hand smoke will also affect your little one. 


Hope this helps,
