Benefits of stopping smoking in pregnancy

Stopping smoking will help both you and your baby straight away. When you stop smoking:

  • You will cut down on the risk of complications in pregnancy and birth
  • You are more likely to have a healthier pregnancy and a healthier baby
  • You will reduce the risk of stillbirth
  • Your baby is less likely to be born too early and have to face the additional breathing, feeding and health problems that often go with being premature
  • Your baby is less likely to be born underweight
  • You will reduce the risk of cot death, also known as sudden infant death syndrome
