Many women smokers have found that the motivation to protect their baby helped them to quit. Smoking during pregnancy raises risk of stillbirth, miscarriage, birth defects and a host of other health problems for you and your child. If you're trying to conceive, also consider that smoking can lower fertility. All strength for a smoke-free future - you have a wonderful incentive!
