Ultrasound Images Suggest A Scary Effect Of Smoking On Unborn Babies

Image +text source:

Face and mouth movements of a fetus carried by a mother who smoked daily during pregnancy (above) compared to those of a fetus whose mother did not smoke.


The effects of smoking on the fetus's hand and mouth movements are similar to those seen among fetuses whose mothers are highly stressed or depressed. However, the effects of nicotine exposure appear to be considerably more dramatic.

Why? The researchers hypothesize that when a fetus is exposed to nicotine, its central nervous system, which controls facial movements, does not "develop at the same rate and in the same manner" as in normal fetuses, according to a Monday press release from Durham.
