Smoking during pregnancy causes many problems.

Not only has it been linked to low birth weight and premature delivery of the baby, but also has been linked to future childhood obesity.

Children that have been born to mothers who engaged in smoking during pregnancy have shown an inclination to eat foods higher in fat, which is linked to a part of the brain that controls the reward system.

If trying to quit, there are many programs that are highly effective, and the advice of a qualified doctor should be sought out in order to find an alternative to this bad habit.

Smoking during pregnancy not only should be avoided on behalf of the child, but also the mother, since it may cause more difficulty while the mother is in labor.
