A few babies may even die. Smoking during and after pregnancy is a risk factor of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). SIDS is an infant death for which a cause of the death cannot be found. Babies born to women who smoke are more likely to have certain birth defects, like a cleft lip or cleft palate. On average, smoking during pregnancy doubles the chances that a baby will be born too early or weigh less than 5 1/2 pounds at birth. Smoking also more than doubles the risk of stillbirth. Every cigarette you smoke increases the risks to your pregnancy.
