Passive Smoking Matters to Mothers

PositiveTips

Women exposed to second hand tobacco smoke are at significantly increased risk of miscarriage, stillbirth and ectopic pregnancy--almost as much as if they were active smokers. This data comes from the very large Women's Health Initiative. The added risk ranged from 17% to 61% and was highest with the largest exposures in childhood, adult life, or at work.

PositiveTip: Avoid secondhand smoke as much as possible!
