The risks of smoking during pregnancy

Let's face it, smoking can have a big impact on your pregnancy and your child's development.


During pregnancy, smoking can lead to:


  • Ectopic pregnancy or premature delivery
  • Spontaneous miscarriage
  • Placental abruption
  • Your baby's weight being too low.


After birth, smoking may increase the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
