Irrational. It is so harmful to the baby that it should be illegal. I have nothing nice to say. If you aren't willing to stop smoking well before you get pregnant, you should not have children in my opinion

Just to clear this up: doctors do not want pregnant women to go from 2packs a day to nothing at all overnight (much the same way that alcoholics should not quit cold turkey). However, they are advised to quit before the critical period has ended. Or better yet 6-12 months before conception.

It is the most disgusting and selfish thing a woman can do while she is pregnant.

Sad. I understand though. Addiction is powerful. Just because one addict could quit easily doesn't mean all addicts can. I try not to judge. Sadly I've known Many pregnant smokers and oddly none really have any medical issues nor were they premature or small.
