Smoke Free Pregnancy

Smoking during pregnancy contributes to an increased risk of a broad range of complications during pregnancy, including spontaneous abortion, pregnancy and labour complications, stillbirth, low birth weight and sudden infant death syndrome.

Low birth weight has been associated with developing chronic disease later in life including cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus and overweight and obesity.

In addition, exposure to environmental tobacco smoke is also a risk during pregnancy, and harms both the mother and foetus.
