Health issues - Babies who smoke

Foetal Health

Smoking doesn't just have an impact on the smoker's body. Anyone who is regularly exposed to tobacco smoke, through living with a smoker or being in a constantly smoky environment has increased health risks.

This also includes babies in their Mother's womb and as newborn infants.

When a Mother-to-be inhales cigarette smoke, the chemicals that enter her blood stream are ingested by the baby growing in her womb.

Mothers who smoke during their pregnancy are at risk of giving birth to an underdeveloped baby. As newborns, these babies carry a much greater risk of cot death.

Smoking during pregnancy has been linked to asthma and some learning difficulties in children.
