If you need another reason to quit smoking before trying to become pregnant (or once you are pregnant, if it was an unplanned pregnancy), consider new research that shows babies born to women who smoke during their first trimester are at a great risk of having congenital heart defects. Smoking during pregnancy has been a big no-no for a very long time, but it amazes me how many women still smoke during pregnancy. Just the other day, one of my Facebook friends status updates was about seeing a "very pregnant" woman with a cigarette hanging out of her mouth. Sadly, I wasn't surprised. We're often most affected when we see a woman smoking later in pregnancy. However, this study (and others) show that smoking very early in pregnancy is extremely dangerous as well. According the the recent study published in Pediatrics and that was conducted by the Centers for Disease Control, smoking during pregnancy increases a baby's risk of developing a congenital heart defect by 20 - 70%. For the study, the CDC analyzed data on the following:
  • 2,525 infants with congenital heart defects, and
  • 3,435 healthy infants
The babies were born between 1981 and 1989 in Baltimore and Washington, D.C.
Congenital heart defects, which impair heart function and can increase the risk of death or long-term disability, affect nearly 40,000 U.S. infants each year and contribute to about 30 percent of infant deaths caused by birth defects. Each year in the United States, about 2,500 infants are born with right ventricular outflow tract obstructions and about 5,600 are born with atrial septal defects. In 2004, estimated U.S. hospital costs for all congenital heart defects totaled $1.4 billion, according to the CDC. (Source: Business Week)
