For smokers, the pregnancy is a challenge: to stop smoking, and it’s not always easy! The current vogue for cigarettes electronic, supposed to be less harmful, redistributes the cards? An update!
Pregnancy and smoking, it’s taboo!
Smoking is bad for health, we all know! And when you’re pregnant, it’s worse. Without wishing to put a layer of guilt to those who fail to stop, it is always good to remember a few facts and figures:
- 22% of pregnant womensmoke in the last trimester of pregnancy ;
- In a cigarette, there is no less 4000 components, including carbon monoxide, of hydrocyanic acid, radioactive elements, metals… Not to mention the nicotine! All pass, at more or less high dose, in the maternal body and in that of the fetus.
- Smokingimpairs fertility, including the quality of the cervical mucus.
- Miscarriages and pregnanciesextra uterine occur more frequently in dependent smokers.
- Prematurity and stunted intra uterine are more common in babies of smoking mothers.
Despite these known of all information, it is not always easy to quit pending baby. For some, the click will happen as soon as the discovery of the positive test; for others, the pregnancy, generating stress, is not enough. When, in addition, the guilt is involved, the vicious circle takes place!
Vaping, it’s good for the health; ?
Electronic cigarettes are booming, and not far to go to be ‘the’ solution to the tobacco dependence. These flavored liquid-based electronic systems allow to keep the gesture, and to a lesser extent the taste of the cigarette, while apparently avoiding its deleterious health effects. “Vaping” also allows to keep a certain usability related to the famous “smoke break”! For all that, what for Moms ?
Indeed, liquids used in e-cigarettes are based on propylene glycol or glycerol (Glycerin), chemicals. The harmfulness of propylene glycol, a solvent used in industry, has already been demonstrated at the level of the respiratory system; as for Glycerin, its multiple uses (plastics, Frost, lubricants…) cast doubt on his long-term term.

There is no step back today to assess the potential danger of the electronic cigarette on health; but one thing is certain: because of the burning and ingestion of steam, it is obvious that it leaves some traces in the body…
Pregnant, what do I do?
Smoking or order, that is the question? In reality, it would be better to avoid the other. In absolute terms, we could say that an electronic cigarette gives off less pollutants than a conventional cigarette (that’s partly true), as a liquid without nicotine refill exist. However, when in doubt, the best would be to abstain!
However, if totally stop vaping seems insurmountable, here are some rules to follow:
- We always choose a recharge without nicotine liquid, or, at least, low dose possible. Wean yourself off of nicotine will make you take a big step towards the final judgment!
- We only use liquids to recharge at base of natural Glycerin instead of glycerol, and banished the propylene glycol. Corollary: always carefully read the composition of the bottle! The list of ingredients must be the shortest possible. Ideally, we avoid also the artificial aromas and essential oils.
- Be provided with discernment: prefer the devices and refills sold by well-known brands, and beware of products manufactured outside the European Union, in competitive prices…
- Planned breaks “e – cig” and it limits the time: this small work will allow you to identify when you have the most need a “crutch”: after lunch, in the evening, friends…
- Finally, the most important advice: talk to your doctor or to your Beyond the look, they needed direct you to a cessation or service of tose. Do not neglect them: they are not reserved for very large women smokers, and no one there will you morality! On the contrary, you will draw valuable advice that will relegate the cigaretteto oblivion. Believe in yourself, you can do it!
