Risks of smoking during pregnancy

Today is celebrated World No Snuff, why I want to talk about some of the risks of smoking, or being exposed to smoke snuff, During pregnancy:

  • Increases the risk of complications during pregnancy, as an abortion or premature birth.
  • Some inhaled chemicals may affect fetal growth, increasing the chances that this is born underweight.
  • Milk for breastfeeding have toxic substances that can harm the baby's health.
  • It increases the risk that the baby can develop asthma or other respiratory problems during childhood.
  • The baby may be born with birth defects arising from maternal smoking and cleft lip or cleft palate.
  • You may suffer respiratory infections such as otitis, pneumonia or bronchitis.
  • It increases the risk of sudden infant death, since babies born to smoking mothers, They have twice the risk of suffering.
