I am curious if there is a name to describe the effects of smoking during pregnancy has on the fetus? For example, there is a fetal alcohol syndrome, which describes the effects of alcohol on the fetus, yet, in the articles I've read they just refer to smoking during pregnancy as just that.

Kind Regards

Well, I'm not an expert with this. On the other hand, I have never been pregnant, but as I know, smoking during pregnancy is not good to your health and to your baby. It will affect the baby inside your womb, so be careful to that.

It's just like this, you're feeding the child in the womb with harmful chemicals that tobacco has. veins constrict and delivery of those chemicals induces the child. Not nice huh. :?:

Hi friends,
Every body knows that smoking is injurious to our health. But it create more difficulty when a smoker doing smoking in her pregnant time. Smoking increases the chance the baby will be stillborn or and it can even cause a miscarriage. Estimates show that about 30 percent of low birth weight babies are caused by smoking. Smoking during pregnancy also lowers there baby's normal lung functioning. In addition, smoking during pregnancy gives a greater chance of physical defects like cleft lip and cleft palate.
