Smoking during pregnancy leads to birth of premature babies with deformed limbs etc…

By Live Dr - Tue Jul 12, 12:32 pm

Research works done in various universities have reavealed that Smoking is not only injurious to your health but may also affect the foetus (in case of pregnant ladies).So pregnant women’s be careful of the self acquired danger may not only destroy your health but also your lovable developing baby.In case of chain smoker’s , you may better show temporary abstinence from the 15 th week of pregnancy to the birth of th baby so that the baby is unaffected from the harmful disabling deformities.

New research into common birth defects associated with smoking during pregnancy shows that public health guidance should now be more explicit about the specific malformations associated with maternal smoking, in order to try and reduce the numbers of pregnant women who smoke.(credit:topnews.in)

A study was made on mostly the specific defects of smoking on the foetus and was recently pulblished in an article ,”HUMAN REPRODUCTION UPDATE”.

Despite the usual health advice provided to the pregnant ladies to abstain from smoking , there is still lot a people who are more worried about smoking than their health of their child.In UK 45% of women under 20 and 17% overall still smoke during pregnancy, according to the national figures (Office for National Statistics 2006). In the USA, 20% of women aged under 25 years smoke during pregnancy, compared to 9% among those aged over 35.

The disorders associated with continuing smoking during pregnancy includes:

  • Miscarriage
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Premature birth
  • Small babies
  • Stillbirth and neonatal death
  • Deformed limbs
  • Facial deformities
  • Club fooT
  • Gastrointestinal disorders
  • Sudden Infant Death syndrome

A Research work made by scientists at University College London reported that Among the dangers posed by smoking of the pregnant women on foetus,Deformed limbs,facial deformities like cleft lip/palate,club foot,gastrointestinal problems are the more common defects to affect the baby.

In this research work, The authors examined a total of 172 research papers published over the last 50 years, which looked at a combined total of 174,000 cases of malformation alongside 11.7 million controls. The risk was increased by 26% for having a baby with missing or deformed limbs, 28% for clubfoot, 27% for gastrointestinal defects, 33% for skull defects, 25% for eye defects, and 28% for cleft lip/palate. The greatest increase in risk (50%) was for a condition called gastroschisis, where parts of the stomach or intestines protrude through the skin.

In order to reduce the birth of babies with deformities , increased health advice and guidlines have to be provided to the pregnant ladies and things have to be sorted out to reduce maternal smoking.And most probably before the actual related deformities with birth were not confirmed and the word was not spread among the public specifically but now it’s proved my the scientists and so now these guidlines can be provided so that the smokers are convinced to atleast quit smoking during pregnancy for the betterment of their children.And among the maternal smoker’s under 20 years of aged person’s top the lot and so parents and boy friends take care with increased advice and guidlines
