Health issues
Babies who smoke

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 end up in her blood stream all go through the developing baby in her womb.

Mothers who smoke during pregnancy are at risk of giving birth to an underdeveloped baby and their newborn babies are at a much greater risk of cot death.

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