1 in 14 women smoke while pregnant, new report shows

In 2011, about 10 percent of women in the US reported smoking during their last three months of pregnancy. More youthful and less instructed mothers-to-be were the well on the way to keep puffing on cigarettes while pregnant, as indicated by the National Center for Health Statistics, some portion of the U.S. Communities for Disease Control and Prevention. Despite the fact that it's entrenched that cigarette smoking amid pregnancy has been related to low birthweight, preterm birth and different birth surrenders.

Health experts point out one of the study's limitations may be that the data was self-reported, so the rates of pregnant women who smoked may actually be higher. Patrick Drake, senior author of the report and a demographer at the CDC's National Center for Health Statistics, said, "These levels do vary widely by state, maternal age, race and Hispanic origin, and education, but any amount of smoking during pregnancy is too much".

Dr. Robyn Horsager-Boehrer, chief of gynecology and obstetrics from the William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital at the University of Texas Southwestern's, stated that Since most women might be less likely to admit that they smoked cigarettes while pregnant, the prevalence of smoking could be under-reported. The prevalence of smoking was highest for women aged 20 to 24 years, followed by those aged 15 to 19 and 25 to 29 years (10.7, 8.5, and 8.2 percent, respectively). Utah, Texas, Hawaii, New Jersey, Nevada, Arizona, New York and CT, and the District of Columbia also had smoking rates under 5%.

Alaska natives and Native Americans were the most prone to smoking while pregnant at 16.7%, with certain states in the country clocking in higher smoking rates among mothers-to-be. The District of Columbia's percentage was 2.6 percent. Non-Hispanic white women's rate was 10.5 percent, followed by non-Hispanic black women at 6 percent, Hispanic women at 1.8 percent and non-Hispanic Asian women at 0.6 percent.

Those smoking rates, however, did not match the infant mortality rates between 2013 and 2015, according to a CDC report released in January.

Smoking has for quite some time been known to raise risks that babies will be conceived before, more broken down and littler, however numerous women battle to break the dependence while conveying a youngster. At 12.2%, the chances of smoking were most astounding among ladies with a secondary school confirmation or GED, and at.4% least for ladies with a graduate degree or higher.
