Pregnancy & Cigarretes:

"A dangerous combination"

........ BY VERONICA BAEZA, MPA SAN DIEGO TIJUANA BORDER INITIATIVE

 

SMOKING DURING THE PREGNANCY PUT BABY LIFE AT RISK!!!

Smoking can cause considerable damage to a woman's reproductive system according to the Center's for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta, GA. An estimated 27% percent of reproductive aged women smoke cigarettes in the United States. This equates to more than 14 million women ages 18-44 who smoke cigarettes.

Women who smoke prior to, and during pregnancy, are at risk for uterine cancers, infertility, premature birth, pregnancy complications, low-birth weight infants, stillbirth, and a higher rate of infant mortality.

Cigarette smoking is having a tremendous health impact on smoking mothers and their unborn or born children. In addition, smoking-related pregnancy complications are often severe and put babies at risk for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), poor lung development, asthma, and respiratory infections.

There is a significant health benefit for women who quit smoking during pregnancy. Low birth weight could be reduced by 17-26 percent by eliminating smoking during pregnancy. Babies who are brought home to a smoke-free environment are more likely to develop into healthy infants and toddlers.

For more information about the dangers of smoking prior to and during pregnancy or for information on how to quit, contact the San Diego-Tijuana Border Initiative at 619-584-8269.
