"The great thing about being smoke-free while you are pregnant is that your baby gets immediate and important benefits from it. Equally great are the benefits you get. There are numerous medical studies showing that babies who are exposed to cigarette smoke in the womb weigh-less and are more likely to be premature. In addition, a woman’s pregnancy and delivery tend to be more complicated if the mother smokes."

"The unfortunate thing about smoking and pregnancy is that many of the compounds in cigarette smoke reach a developing baby through the umbilical cord and placenta. One of the particularly harmful ones is carbon monoxide. If you smoke, carbon monoxide binds to the cells that are supposed to carry oxygen to your baby, so your baby gets less oxygen than it could."
