What would you say to mothers who's pregnant and smoking

I would not say anything to a mother who is pregnant and smoking unless she asks me for advice. I am sure that everyone knows that smoking is dangerous and has risks and that it is not safe to do during pregnancy. Chances are that mother is very addicted and is having trouble quiting. It is not my place to give her a lecture or make her feel bad. If she asks me for advice I would be happy to help her.

    Same here. My mom smoked during a couple of her pregnancies. i even think my sister smoked during her pregnancy but am not completely sure since she doesn't smoke around my niece at all. So you are right, they know but are struggling to quit.
