Mom Wishes She Hadn't Smoked While Pregnant

A mother is admitting to a dark time in her past. Amanda smoked while pregnant, putting her baby at risk. "My baby was born two months early and only weighed 3 pounds," she said. "Looking back, of course my baby was affected by my smoking," said Amanda. She’s now a participant in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Tips From Former Smokers Campaign. Quitting smoking at any age has benefits. It's never too late.
