Description:

Although the Department of Health recommends women to avid smoking in pregnancy, the most recent Irish data show that approximately 11% of women continue to report this behaviour. it is likely that this prevalence figure is an under-representation of the problem, as non-disclosure rates of 10-25% exist in self-reported smoking status in pregnancy. Our unpublished data from the Coombe Hospital, Dublin shows that although there is a downward trend in maternal smoking since 2009, the proportions of heavy smokers have almost doubled.
