    Default How Does Smoking Affect a Fetus?

    Smoking during pregnancy is never a good idea, as it can severely affect the unborn child. The nicotine in cigarettes can cause artery spasms. Because blood is sent to the placenta via these arteries, these spasms can reduce the amount of oxygen and nutrients that the baby receives. As a result of nutrient and oxygen deficiency, the child is more likely to have a low birth weight. In fact, women who smoke heavily are twice as likely to give birth to a baby weighing less than 5 pounds. Additionally, smoking can also increase the risk of premature delivery, which can lead to health conditions such as metal retardation, cerebral palsy and even death. The good news, however, is that women who stop smoking by the end of their second trimester drastically reduce their risk of having a premature or low birth weight baby.

    yes, I think the nicotine of the cigarette can bring some illness. Some of the illness that can nicotine bring to the fetus are, instances that the baby will become small, and some other diseases.

    From memory I think smoking deprives the fetus of the oxygen it needs to develop so smoking during pregnancy causes babies to be born under developed.

    Nicotine in cigarettes can cause artery spasms and can severely affect the unborn child.
