It should be illegal
Ast year I made a post with how much concern I had for my sister in laws baby. She was smoking alot while pregnant, seeing how its now illegal to smoke in the car with children. I really hope its not much longer until they make selling cigarettes to pregnant woman illegal too.
Anyways she ended up having th baby prematurely. They had to induce her into labor early by a month and a half before hee due date. The doctor said the baby’s umbilical cord and placenta started to die. The baby had actually started to loose weight inside of her and she had to have a c section. The main excuse i have heard from woman about quiting smoking while pregnant is that its stress on the baby. When its infact the opposite, babys o2 levels go up and down whilw a mother is smoking. Its 2018 woman cant actually fight that smoking is less harm reduction. There is way too many studies done. Anyways her baby came out at 4 lbs and she was smoking right after her labor, while breastfeeding. She learnt nothing. I smoked for five years, when i got pregnant i knew my body wasn’t just my own. I quit. If you are smoking with out even cutting back you should reevaluate yourself. Its dangerous.
