If you currently smoke, quitting is one of the most important changes you can make to reduce your risk of stillbirth. Smoking puts you at higher risk and it can harm your baby’s growth and development before it is born. There is no ‘safe’ number of cigarettes to smoke in pregnancy, so the best thing to do is completely stop and not just cut down.
