Insights zone 1 (I1)


Smoking during pregnancy increases the risk of complications during pregnancy, low birthweight of the baby and the risk of several disorders later in life. In Britain, in 11% of pregnancies, the mother smokes at the time of delivery. E-cigarettes are expected to be substantially less harmful during pregnancy than smoking, however there is as yet little information on prevalence of EC use during pregnancy or on effects of health outcomes of mother and baby. This presentation will summarise a systematic review of the evidence of EC use in pregnancy and discuss implications for policy and practice.
