Cigarette smoke reduces the amount of
oxygen your blood is able to carry to your vital
organs — and your baby's. Since a
developing fetus depends entirely on the
mother for its nourishment, poorly
oxygenated blood could cause a variety of -
problems for the baby. Statistically, children
born to mothers who smoke have lower birth
weights, and babies with lower birth weights
often have other, related health problems.

You are an adult. You've heard and read what
smoking can do to your body -- how it can
cause cancer and other heart and lung
diseases. You've weighed the risks and made
a conscious choice to keep smoking. But your
baby hasn't had a chance to make that choice.

For yOur baby's sake, stop smoking.
