The study found that smoking during pregnancy can significantly raise the risk of a child developing mental issues during childhood.
The researchers studied birth records of around 175,000 children in the late 1980s and found that the children of mothers who smoked during pregnancy were 32% more likely to have been prescribed psychiatric medicine during childhood in comparison to mothers to be who did not smoke.
For smokers who are pregnant or even those who are planning a family and wish to quite smoking there are a number of helplines and schemes available. Individuals can visit their GP or NHS specialist for help and figures show that with this kind of support network people are four times more likely to quit than if they went it alone.
It is also worth noting that hypnotherapy is a fantastic way to rid yourself of that smoking habit, or any bad habit in fact. The technique works through making positive suggestions during hypnosis which in turn helps the individual to overcome their habit.
