Quit Smoking – How Smoking Harms Even Those Who Never Smoked?

Smoking cigarettes causes many health problems, including cancers, heart disease, and lung disease. When a pregnant woman smokes, she puts herself and her baby at risk. Because the fetus, a developing infant in the mother’s uterus (womb), is in contact with the mother’s bloodstream, any chemicals the mother breathes or ingests can affect the fetus. This includes tobacco smoke coming from the mother’s smoking or inhaling smoke in the environment (also known as second-hand smoke).
Complications associated with smoking while pregnant include –

  1. Low birth weight
  2. Intrauterine (inside the uterus) growth delay
  3. Preterm labor
  4. Premature rupture of membranes (water bag), which may lead to preterm delivery or
    an infection affecting the baby
  5. Increased rates of stillbirths, miscarriages, and ectopic (outside the uterus) pregnancy
  6. Complications during delivery
