Default holy pseudo-smokes! It's better to smoke than use Nicotine substitutes when pregnant

Think popping a Nicorette is better for your unborn child than a pull on a Newport Light? Nope. Nicotine substitutes may be worse for your baby than smoking, according to a study in Obstetrics & Gynecology. In an analysis of 76,768 women, infants born to those who used nicotine substitutes like gum or patches in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy had a 60 percent higher risk of birth defects like limb malformations than babies whose moms smoked or used no nicotine. Nicotine chewed in gum or absorbed through the skin may be more likely to disrupt embryo development than nicotine that's inhaled in smoke. Keep your baby safe by swearing off all nicotine (including secondhand smoke).
