Tobacco and pregnancy

Tobak och graviditet - engelskaThe content concerns Östergötland

The foetus is exposed to harmful substances if you smoke or use snus during pregnancy. This poses a risk to the foetus and the pregnancy. As soon as you stop consuming tobacco, the risk goes down. Anyone can give up tobacco. But you can get help if it’s hard. Avoid nicotine plasters, nicotine gum and e-cigarettes.

You should give up tobacco if you want to become pregnant or realise that you are pregnant. Don’t smoke, use snus or chew tobacco for the rest of the pregnancy. The less tobacco that the foetus inside you is exposed to, the better.
