Moreover, stillbirths, low body weight, SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome) are more likely in babies with smoker mothers. Though giving up smoking during pregnancy is not easy, it can be achieved successfully. The choice of methods is limited for a pregnant mother as she cannot expose her baby to medications.
