The unexpected and sudden infant death risk doubled with smoking during pregnancy. While the results of this study reported by CNN may not be shocking, what is surprising is how they define "smoking".
The AAP study on Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID) revealed the smoking even one cigarette a day can double the risk.
Pregnant mothers who smoke a pack of cigarettes a day triple the risk of SUID.
The AAP results report, "If we assume causality, 22% of SUIDs in the United States can be directly attributed to maternal smoking during pregnancy."
While it may be common knowledge that smoking during pregnancy is harmful to both mother and baby, this study confirms just how dangerous it can be.
