SMOKING DURING PREGNANCY

Hi I wonder if I can have a few opinions. A friend of mine is now six months pregnant and is still smokimg. She smokes a light brand, about ten a day. We have chatted about this issue a few times, but we are not sure if there is proof that it can do harm to the baby.

I want her to stop becasue I am worried about her, but is really difficult for her to give it up.

Any information would be welcomed

Thanks
