    Why quit? Cigarette smoking during pregnancy increases the chances of premature birth, miscarriage , low birth weight, certain birth defects, other lifelong chronic disabilities, and infant death, including sudden infant death syndrome and placental abruption. A recent study by the U.S. Department of Health and Services also suggests that smoking during pregnancy may suffer withdrawal-like symptoms.

    How to quit? It’s always best to divert your attention and energy to something else.
