Strategies can help support women to stop cigarette smoking in pregnancy so babies have better health. Cigarette smoking in pregnancy is common, particularly where there is low income and social disadvantage. Smoking in pregnancy increases the risk of babies having low birthweight and being born too early. Babies often struggle to cope with life outside the womb and can suffer ill health later in life. Many mothers find it hard to stop, or to reduce, smoking during pregnancy even knowing the benefits this may have, because smoking can help them cope with stress. There are effective strategies to help and support women to stop smoking that lead to fewer premature babies and better birthweights for babies.
