Did you know smoking decreases the risk for preeclampsia? And keeps those pesky babies from getting too big?

By gosh, I'm handing out the Marlboros along with the prenatal vits at all my new OB visits.

All kidding aside...smoking is bad for momma and for baby. I can totally relate to how hard it is to give it up - been there done that three times. But you know what made to easier?

Smoking during pregnancy versus placental abruption, previa, fetal death, growth restriction...

Hmmm, tough choice.


Come on momma - you can do it.
