It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that smoking IS harmful to anyone or any living breathing thing, let alone an unborn baby! Come on, I'm not judgin anyone that smokes, but for Gods sakes don't try to justify it as ok and fine by bowing smoke up everyone's asses by saying it doesn't cause problems for babies or human beings...no pun intended!! Lol! Sorry, with your brain power, you probably don't get that. Lol! We can always pull out the medical books and facts and prove you're wrong about smoking not causing health and growth problems for babies and children who have to breath it second hand smoke kills people every day, and that is a fact. Why wouldn't a pregnant woman not talk to her dr about suggestions for smoking cessation? There are several options, one being the e-cigarette which isn't harmful, Nicotine patches and Chantix (which I don't know if that medication is contraindicated in pregnancy or not?) but you could ask your dr about methods to quit at least while you're pregnant. Why take a chance of it hurting your baby?

Why are you even debating this? Everyone that has any sense about them knows the facts of the effects of smoking not only to themselves but to the unborn child.

Get down off of your soapboxes. What people decide to do is their choice, NOT yours. It is people like you that have made it so us smokers can barely even smoke in public anymore. If I want to smoke leave me the hell alone. It's MY money and MY choice. Just like it is a pregnant woman's choice. My wife smoked while pregnant with both of our kids, and guess what? They are perfectly healthy.
Typical smoker. Only care about yourself. That fact that your wife smoked while pregnant says it all.

Disgusted you have no clue!!! Yes it is not right for a pregnant person to smoke, but I want you to think about what im about to tell you. Most people who smoke depend on the cigs for their nerves. Ok say a woman gets pregnant who is addicted to cigarettes she know she shouldnt smoke then her nerves start rattling and anything can set her off she may become angry or depressed, now she can smoke a cigarette and calm down or she can harm another human being possibly resulting in death or her can harm herself possibly resulting in death. How about I get pregnant and try to stop smoking and in the process beat ur a** everyday in place of my cigarette
do you know what a being is? do you know whata fetus is? do you know if the fetus is enjoying a ciggie or not ?does ciggie smoke calm its nerves ? yes it is true babys are addicted to nicotine. but their lungs arnt brownish . lol

babys arnt inhaling smoke, they are getting nicotine. its the other chemicals that are harmful, nicotine is harmless. when you put on a "patch" the baby gets nicotine. the baby will shake for a few days when it is born. maybe a lower birth weight. etc. did you drink pop or coffee when you were preggo ? cafeine is addictive, and your unborn baby is on a buzz. quit being such a do gooder.

Don't smoke at all. It is best not to start.

I too am a smoker and can't believe how many "closet smokers" are out there. However the Minute I got pregnant I quit smoking. If you think it's ok for a woman to smoke while she's preganant...well, you're an idiot! The baby is depending on Momma to be healthy while in the uterus!!!!! I think it is CHILD ABUSE when a pregnant woman smokes. I didn't start again until my children were much older, which I admit was probably the dumbest thing I've done yet!
No way, when did they come up with a pregnancy test that tells you you're pregnant the MINUTE it happens? That statement was a flat out lie!
