Smoke does not go through the umbilical cord to the baby. The umbilical cord has 2 arteries and 1 vein. The arteries bring Oxygen and nutrients to fetus and the Vein sends out wast products back into the mother's system for disposal. Smoking can cause low birth weight, decreased oxygen supply to fetus which as result can cause other physiological issues with the fetus.
