When I was pregnant with my second son a friend of mine was also pregnant. She smoked heavily and had a son with a cleft lip and pallet. The doctor told her it was most likely caused by smoking. Smoking is a high risk factor in cleft lip and pallet babies. Her baby had to have many surgeries starting at age 9 months, and continuing for years as he grew and his mouth and gum line had to be changed.
Many smokers have healthy babies, but there are already so many risk factors out there, I can't imagine adding to my baby's risks.

My mom smoked and drank during her 7 pregnancies. She had 3 miscarriages, and the 4 she did have were small. I was 5 lbs at birth, my sister was 4 lbs. All four of us have learning disabilities.
