Abstract: Exposure of non-smoking pregnant women to environmental tobacco smoke, or passive smoking, has been shown to be associated with spontaneous abortion, perinatal death, premature delivery and low birthweight. In the west, smoking by pregnant women is a major health problem. In Asia, women smoke much less commonly, but smoking among men is increasing rapidly; therefore, passive smoking by non-smoking women is an increasing problem for maternal and child health.
