The Association of Maternal Smoking with Infant Mortality and Low Birth Weight in North Carolina, 1999

Record #:
Maternal smoking can cause harm to an infant in many ways. There is an increased risk for SIDS, and babies are more likely to have a low birth rate which can lead to health complications later in life. If women were to stop smoking during pregnancy, the infant mortality rate would drop significantly.
