Smoking or vaping: pregnancy
If you or your partner smokes or vapes, it can be harder to get pregnant.
If you smoke or vape while you’re pregnant, your baby smokes or vapes too.
Smoking or vaping when pregnant: harmful for your baby
Quitting smoking or vaping: good for you and your baby
Smoking or vaping might reduce how much breastmilk you make and put harmful substances in your breastmilk. But even if you smoke or vape, breastfeeding is still best for your baby.
It’s never too late to quit. For example, one hour after you quit, the risk of pregnancy complications and your baby’s risk of illness goes down.
