Women checking pregnancy test

Women who smoke have a harder time getting pregnant. They also face more dangers if they do get pregnant:

  • You may lose the baby or have a stillborn (dead) baby.

  • Your baby may be born too small.

  • Your baby is more likely to die of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

  • Your baby may be cranky, restless, and get sick more often.

There's no better time to quit than now

The good news is that quitting increases your chances of getting pregnant and having a healthy baby. It helps to quit at any time while you are pregnant. It's even better to quit before you get pregnant.
