A study by Curtin University found that quitting support for smoking mothers should continue even after the birth of their first baby, as many of these women will become pregnant again, and quitting can significantly reduce the risk of future preterm births.
The long-term study looked at 23-year-old records and stories of 63,540 Australian women with more than one child who smoked during their first pregnancy.
Professor Guy Pereira, a lead researcher at the Curtin School of Public Health, said more than a third of women who smoked during pregnancy were able to quit smoking for the next pregnancy.
“Our study found that for more than 30 percent of future smokers, abortion is possible, which could reduce the risk of preterm birth by 26 percent,” said Professor Pereira. ,
“Although the benefits of abandoning abortion in harming unborn children are well established, it was less understandable to keep the message left during the next pregnancy ը the risk of premature birth. Address:
“What is clear from the study is that the messages left ությունը support for pregnant women who smoke, even after giving birth, can have a significant positive effect on both them and their unborn children.”
Professor Pereira said he was concerned about the number of women who reportedly smoked during pregnancy.
“According to the latest data from the Australian Institute for Health and Welfare, 75% of smokers continue to smoke after 20 weeks knowing that they are pregnant,” said Professor Pereira.
“The second trimester is vital for the growth and development of unborn babies. Organs continue to develop,, liver, pancreas սկսում kidneys begin to function. Babies also begin to hear sounds such as their mother’s heartbeat.
“At this crucial time, the Cruc is cutting off oxygen to the unborn baby, delivering it to cocktail chemicals, including those that cause cancer. It can delay growth and development, increase the risk of cleft palate, change the baby’s brain and lungs.
Although research has shown that anti-smoking campaigns need to be continued for those who prefer to smoke during their first pregnancy, Professor Pereira has urged those who are considering having a family, those who are already pregnant, or those who have recently given birth in general. do not smoke
“Among mothers who smoked during the first pregnancy, the risk of giving birth prematurely during the second pregnancy was 26% lower than those who continued to smoke.”
“Despite smoking during the first pregnancy, a woman can reverse this situation during her next pregnancy to reduce the complications of unborn children. Leaving is possible և is always the safest option.
