ABSTRACT
The authors reflect on the efficiency of smoking ban in reducing risks of pregnancy complications such as premature deaths, low birthweight (LBW), and perinatal morbidity and mortality. They say that etobacco control strategies such as the comprehensive smoke-free policy work effectively to change the social norms of a society by providing both health and economic benefit. They examine various studies supporting the positive population health benefits of smoke-free policies for pregnant women.
